My father had bright blue eyes, which I have inherited, and which are the color of this yarn. The story could end there, but given the theme of this line of yarn, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that he was also a home brewer, and beer judge at the Nebraska State Fair, and had a regular spot at the bar at his local watering hole, Dad's Tavern. This one's for you, Dad!
"Dad's Barstool Blue" Sock-aholic® II is dyed by hand at our brewery using a wonderfully soft 4-ply Luxury Sock Yarn made from 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. Each 100g skein contains approximately 460 yards, and knits at a gauge of 7-9 stitches per inch using size 1-2 needles. This yarn has a smooth and refined appearance, and will help you create elegant fingering weight projects.
This yarn may be machine washed in cool water using a gentle cycle and mild detergent. Roll in a towel to remove excess water, and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
