Lovely, lovely hand painted, superwash merino. I will have to find an extra-special sock pattern for this yarn. The picture really does not do it justice. This is from Three Waters Farm in Carrboro, N.C. The color is called Mediterranean and I also got another color called Forest Floor with beautiful browns and mossy greens. Of course, the rub is that I have too much Christmas knitting to get to it right now. Patience….must have patience!
