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® Brewski is dyed by hand at our brewery using a wonderfully soft 4-ply Luxury Worsted Yarn made from 100% Fine Merino Superwash. Each skein contains 190 yards, and knits at a gauge of 5-6 stitches per inch using size 5-7 needles. This yarn is soft as a cloud, yet durable enough to make fabulous garments that you'll want to wear right next to your skin.
We can produce dye lots up to 10 skeins (1900 yards).
This yarn may be machine washed in cool water using a gentle cycle and mild detergent. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
