I’m totally stuck. I have this absolutely gorgeous new yarn base that I am dyeing and want to add to our main stable of yarns, but it needs a name! So, with a great suggestion from Aimee at L’Oisive Thé, I’m running this as a contest… help me name the yarn base and you’ll get a skein in the colourway of your choice.
The yarn is 50% of the softest and squishiest superwash merino wool blended with 50% glossy silk in a fingering/sock weight. It’s about 375 yards per 4 oz skein and could definitely be used to knit a pair of special socks, or better yet, a little shawl or cardigan. I love this yarn because it has the easy-care of superwash, but also added strength and lustre from the silk.
I’d like to add this to our website for early Spring, so go ahead and email me your suggestions at felicia [at] sweetgeorgiayarns [dot] com up until February 28, 2010. Send up to 5 suggestions for the name of the base yarn (not the actual purple colour) and also the colourway you’d like if you win… see our colourways here » So far, our sock yarns are called things like “Tough Love Sock” and “Superwash Sock”…
I’m so looking forward to hearing your ideas!!
