I would like to introduce your to "The Copper Corgi" other wise known as Sarah Meurer.
Sarah is an indie dyer who lives in Savannah, Georgia. She is an experienced in knitting, crocheting and as she calls it 'hording of yarn!' (Love the expression)
She is a graphic designer who has found passion in dyeing and combines art with her passion of design.
your inspiration you ask...her mascot, Penny.
How can you not love such a cute face!
The Copper Corgi has provided a fantastic Superwash Merino Sock yarn for this review. I was so pleased with this yarn for a few reasons that I would like to tell you about. Her colors are so well blended. They have just the right mixture of bold with the touch of neutrals to pull the color off in the right way. Take a look at the review yarn that is appropriately named "Bloody 'ell!"
Another thing that really sets this yarn apart is how she skeins her yarn. She sells smaller skeins that are perfect for 2-at-a-time socks. This is one of my favorite ways to knit my socks. If you have never tried this method, you are in for a real treat. Each skein has 2oz. -245 yards. and retail for $13.00 each. I feel like this is a really reasonable price for this yarn, you will be very pleased with all aspects of it.
If you are not a sock knitter another advantage of the smaller skeins is that you can use them for smaller projects; fingerless mitts, baby booties etc. Another fantastic reason to check out this etsy seller.
I started a textured sock pattern with this yarn and can I just say...I am loving it. I was amazed at how soft this yarn is and that it is 100% superwash. Sarah really puts some thought into her choice of base for her yarns. (She also has fiber braids if you are a spinner)
As you can see, her color choices are stunning. If you are a 'Hot pink sock' lover like I am, you might want to check out this Pink!
