Vintage Purls Samples!

Oooh, this is good! The Vintage Purls samples are here! And even more exciting - there are two different samples - a superwash merino/nylon sock yarn that might as well have my name on it (actually it does!) - this is totally my colour scheme - I LOVE this sock yarn! (I'll have to design a pattern just for this yarn). It's an extremely generous sample too, approx 20g.

And other other sample is some NZ Merino hand dyed fibre in beautiful soft grey/lilac/bluey-grey. It's also approx 20g, so there is a good amount to spin up or craft with. I really must learn to spin - that's my summer goal (along with finishing my sock book).

Have you visited the Vintage Purls website lately? I went to check it out last week and discovered it was totally my lucky day as the Summer Sock Club had only just been loaded, and I managed to buy one! I can't wait to see what the colours are. If you need some sock yarn for a summer holiday project, order some right now - consider it a gift from Santa. I'm sure you've been good.


  1. That sock yarn is gorgeous! Can't wait.

  2. Oooooohhhh, yum Belinda!!! VP fleece and yarn is just scrummy. You do need to learn to spin,it's seriously addictive:-).
