Coming from a deep love of science fiction I have been working on a sock club which travels through my favourite elements of the genre.
Volume One travels through five different planets existing within science fiction narratives. The sock sets will include a 100g fingering weight skein of yarn alongside a complimentary 20g mini skein.
Arrakis is the planet featured in the science fiction classic Dune by Frank Herbert. For this colourway I wanted to reference the iconic spice melange as well as the blue eyes of those that take it.
This is a dyed to order listing that will ship in 3-4 weeks.
My yarn is hand-dyed using professional acid dyes. Due to the nature of hand-dyeing no two skeins will be alike however I do take evert effort to ensure colour ways are consistent. If you are looking for a greater quantity and want to ensure best chances of consistency please get in touch to arrange a custom order. I would recommend this if ordering quantities greater than 3.
I ensure each skein is washed after dyeing to ensure water runs clear, little dye running may remain however so I do recommend you take care when washing any finished objects. I recommend a gentle wool wash and cold water, do not rub the yarn aggressively as this may felt it unintentionally. Reshape finished objects whilst damp and lay flat.
