Poste Yarn, Patina: St. Basil's
This hand dyed, tonal yarn is prepared in small batches exclusively for Simply Socks Yarn Company. First, we selected a specially milled blend of fiber with a hint of sheen. Then we layer color upon color to achieve a skein that has a shadow and light effect, or a patina that gives a burnished look- thus the name of the collection. The result of this combination is a generously sized skein that is perfect for long lasting socks or a shawl with beautiful drape and hint of luster usually reserved for pricier yarns.
Poste Yarn pays homage to our restored 1940's post office store and dye studio and we hope to bring a bit of that era to you with each skein- when each card or piece of mail held promise and carried importance often looked over in a digital age.
