Hand dye in shades of pinks and purples
When we receive a new dye color or are looking for just the right shades I often dye test strips on a skein of sock yarn . These tests are so much fun to knit up that we wanted to share some with you.

Our " 8 ply Squishy Sock " base is nice and soft with good clear stitch definition.
It has been described with words such as Squishy, Plump, Lofty, & Bouncy.
I have found it equally good for knit & crochet. With its softness and durability, it is excellent for any next to the skin projects, from socks to shawls and more.
This is not a repeatable colorway.
I have tried to capture the colors as accurately as possible, but this may vary depending on monitor settings and type of device .
Hand wash with similar colors in cool water and small amount of mild wool wash. Air dry on a flat towel.
