Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn - Denim Project Ideas

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn - Denim
Denim shown $25.00

Striking hand-dyed colorways, unbelievable softness, superb stitch definition and easy-to-care-for machine washability. Shepherd Sock is truly the ultimate sock yarn! This versatile superwash wool has just a touch of nylon for added durability and can be used for everything from socks and shawls to lacy tops and lightweight cardigans. Each 100g hank is enough to make one pair of adult size socks with a generous 430-435 yards. No matter your tastes and preferences in colors, with over 175 solid and variegated hues to choose from (not to mention Limited Edition colors) there really is a color for everyone!

The color Go, Sandy, Go was created in honor of a very special JBW family/staff member, Sandy! In the fall of 2014, Sandy underwent chemo to address her recurrent cancer, and Lorna's was generous enough to dye up the gorgeous shade of peachy pink, the color endometrial cancer support, to help us raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Both Jimmy Beans Wool and Lorna's Laces are donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this color in any Lorna's Laces yarn to Cast of Chemo!, a fiber-arts based charity that helps to "fund research that will end the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment and, ultimately, cure potentially all cancers."
