Sophistisock is a fabulous fingering-weight blend of scrumptious merino, strong nylon, and sparkling tencel. Not only does this yarn have a fabulous hand, the tencel adds a level of sophistication to the color that is unmatched. Because the cellulose fiber doesn't take the dye, the tencel literally sparkles in the light and gives the color a fantastic heather.
Some of the Sophistisock colorways are in the “Weird Sisters” series inspired by Shakespeare's witches from Macbeth and the magical brews they concoct. This series knits up in any number of ways to create fun spirals on socks or fantastic effects on almost any project you can imagine. Suggestions for using the spiral are included in a free, simple sock pattern from MJ Yarns.
Each of MH Yarns’ colorways, particularly the multi-colors, feature short color runs, which reduces the color pooling prevalent not only with mass produced, space-dyed yarns but also in many hand-painted yarns. Their unique process takes more time, but that effort is well worth it for the customers who find they don't need to work from two different skeins to avoid color pooling.
