Ivy's SockScene Sock Yarn

Ivy's SockScene sock yarn is now available to select US retailers. A 100% Merino super-wash machine washable and dryable yarn, comes in 4oz (100 gram) skeins (approx 410 yards) and is available initially in six colorways, with more to follow.

Each colorway is a classic "Inspired by Nature" color palette, chosen for inspirational beauty from locations around the world, then hand dyed by artisans in our dye studio. Each colorway is accompanied by the "Scene" that inspired it, from a beautiful ocean vista to a simple rock pool in Acadia National Park.

At Ivy Brambles we use a very wide color palette, rather than just simply mixing primary colors. This process gives a greater color gamut (range of color) at some expense in the dying process, but we think the results are well worth it. We strive to produce a very consistent color mix for each of our colorways, with little variation between dye lots.

We will be adding new lines and colorways soon, as we ramp up our new US dye studio.
