The Give-away ends Friday next week the 20th of March 21.00 PM (Amsterdam time). And the winner will be announced the following monday the 23rd. This Give-away is international and by no means sponsored by Instagram.


THE YARN: Zwerfsok comes at a fingering weight (425 m) and i have dyed it in in a semisolid palette of 9 summery colours. Apart from socks it also lends itself perfectly for loose summery garments and crocheting. Feels very soft and slightly dry to the touch, very smooth to work with. Makes sturdy yet lovely fine socks, summery tops and crops as well. Excellent choice for fine chrochetwork as all textures pop out really beautifully with Zwerfsok.

I am proud to tell you that this base is ethically sourced from farms in South America, as is the Fair Lady luxury sock. That means that fair pricing has given the farmers there a living wage, as well as being able to properly maintain their flock in an animal-friendly and mulesing-free environment.

The shopupdate will also include a selection of my fine luxury sock yarn FAIR LADY and the luscious SILK CLOUD. All three yarns are excellent in combination with each other.
