Mountain Colors Twizzlefoot

From the wonderful folks at Mountain Colors, Twizzlefoot is a sock-weight version of their popular worsted-weight Twizzle. The yarn takes is name from the lovely barber-pole effect that results from one ply in the yarn being entirely silk.

The silk takes dye differently than the wool it's plied with ... and the resulting fabric has a vaguely tweedy look. Your knitting will also have more drape than a basic wool-nylon blend sock yarn.

Add Mountain Colors' rich, super-saturated dyeing and Twizzlefoot has become a classic sock yarn!! ​
