Lorna's Laces Solemate in Black Purl
55% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon, 30% Outlast
Isn't this gorgeous !
It's Lorna's Laces yarn Solemate with outlast,
a space-age technology designed by NASA to keep astronauts comfy in their spacesuits.
This technology is now used in yarn
so the garments we knit will keep us comfy, too.
Below is a quick description
Taken from The Loopy Ewe
This sock weight yarn is made from superwash Merino, nylon, and Outlast (R), a fiber technology that interacts with the body's microclimate to moderate temperature, to help from being too hot or too cold. It's "yarn with a built-in climate control!"
You may recall,
this pair of sox began as Gimli,
a eye-catching design that truly screams for a yarn with great stitch definition.
This yarn base has fantastic stitch definition
but not in this Black Purl colorway.
So they're being knit as a generic sox
with hopes that the gorgeous color gets the attention it deserves.
They've a standing rib cuff
with a few eyelets running down the leg portion.
I think the heels will be Cat Bordhi's design:
I've provided a link to Cat's YouTube instructions
It's a great way to custom fit your sox to your heel
Love it ! ! ! !
Gimli's on the back burner 'til later this year.
