Midnight Special

$14.00$33.00

Rocking Sock is a wonderfully soft superwash merino base. It is 75% Superfine superwash merino and 25% Nylon. This is a really durable and reliable blend. 

75% merino wool and 25% nylon is my absolute favorite for socks. Soft enough to be worn against your skin all day long, and thanks to the nylon, strong enough to hold up for a very long time. Added bonus, wool wicks away moisture, so making camping socks out of this merino wool is ideal.

Description

Midnight Special

Midnight Special is a beautiful deep, dark midnight blue. It is one of my favorite colors, and was entirely unexpected. I was getting ready for a trunk show, and had created too many Love is a Battlefield, so I overlaid blue on top of it. The result was this stunning beauty. I think it would work pretty well with almost any color that you could pair it with. 

 This is one of the colorways that got its name after I saw it dry, but I really feel like it lives up to its’ name. 

A little about my colorways: I name all of my colorways for song or lyrics. Music is a huge love of my life, as are the fiber arts. If you aren’t sure what lyric or song the yarn you get is named after, it is kind of fun to go take a listen or to look up the artist. 🙂

Some Colors I think Would go well with Midnight Special:

Saturday in the Park

Sugar, Sugar

Life on Mars

Orange Crush

All Along the Watchtower

Cake by the Ocean

Gold Dust Woman

Never Enough

Cherry Bomb
