Sock Yarn - Rio

Regular price $25.00

'm totally an 80's music geek, right?  Growing up on Long Island, you really couldn't help it, so I have worked up a few tribute colorways to celebrate my faves. This one is "Rio," from one of the best bands ever, Duran Duran!  Check out the purply burgundy, the shots of green, black and red. . . you know you love it!  It is dyed on my go-to base, for a super-soft and strong yarn that will make up an awesome pair of socks, part of a nice shawl or wrap.

I dyed this yarn with colorfast acid dyes, and although I really tried to show colors accurately, please note that they may vary slightly when viewed on different devices. All of my yarns have been thoroughly rinsed, and the colors do not run, however, due to differing chemical makeup and PH of water from one location to another, it is recommended that you wash your garment with like colors for the first couple of washes.
