Luscious colors on a luscious base of merino and alpaca, with a smidge of nylon added for strength. Sure, you could use it for super luscious socks, or... You could go for it with Ripple Effect, a beautiful diagonal ripple stole, designed to use three colorways of coordinating sock-weight yarn for a lovely fade effect. Available for $6 on Ravelry or in-store.

The Tip Jar
Light colored yarns are always best for learning a new technique. How to tell if they're light enough? Stand six or seven feet back and look at the yarn you're considering. If you can easily see the individual strands of yarn, it's light enough. If it looks like a pool of darkness? Then use a different color to learn with.
