Lorna's Laces Yarn - Shepherd Sock - City of Roses

City of Roses is a custom color by Angelika.  Inspired by her walk between her home in Portland, Oregon, on the way to her Yarn Store.   Tall 7 foot rose bushes edged the side of an older apartment complex.  The bright green leaves and deep beautiful pink against the white building inspired this very popular colorway.

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn is available in tonals as well as multis, this 80% Superwash Merino Wool 20% Nylon blend is soft, yet strong enough for great socks. The multi colors pool and swirl in unique ways, creating one of a kind socks for each knitter. They knit up especially interesting in slip stitch patterns. The tonals do well in all sorts of socks, from lace to cables, with a subtle color shading they add interest and depth to create stunning socks. Crochet for a delicate fabric, ideal for infant and baby garments, or adult cool weather garments.  Shepherd Sock yarn is considered a fingering weight size, which is ideal for the standard gauge knitting machine, usually knit up around tension 8 or so, for 8 sts per inch. 

This colorway is also available in Shepherd SportShepherd Worsted, Shepherd Bulky and Honor.

    Gorgeous yarn and colorway

    Posted by Jennifer Enright-Ford on Dec 24, 2019

    Absolutely lovely colorway. It’s a favorite yarn anyway but the greens and pinks really make it work. Quick ship, I search for this all over and Angelika’s was the only store that had it.
