While I designed these primarily for sock knitters looking for small amounts of complimentary solids to go with some of my multi-colored yarns, they could easily be used for small projects like baby booties, hexipuffs, bookmarks, cuffs, holiday ornaments, or any other project where you need 100 yards or less. All six of the colors offered here match at least two of my multi-colored yarns, and are described below -- 

Blue Sun: A blue so bright it's like looking into the sun; a blue, blue sun. Does this colorway represent a stellar body with the classification of O? Or does it represent the shadiest company in the 'Verse? This yarn dyer will never say for sure. Blue Sun matches Hogtown, Hogtown Special, and Seaworthy.

Irish Coffee: One of my first, and most favorite colorways... named after one of my favorite beverages. Irish Coffee is a tonal brown that everyone who loves earth colors seems to be drawn to. Irish Coffee matches Neapolitan, Seaworthy, The 40s Have Called, and The 70s Have Called.

None of Your Beeswax: One of the most popular sock club colorways, which was voted to remain exclusive -- yet the number of requests I've gotten for it has resulted in it being Released By Demand! None of Your Beeswax is a tonal, mottled yellow that practically glows from within. Whatever you make with this is sure to turn heads! None of Your Beeswax matches Browncoat, School of Circus, School of Magic, and The 70s Have Called.

Red Mars: While pictures have proven that Mars is really more of a dusky, dusty brownish red, I still could not resist naming this vibrant primary color after our neighbor planet. Red Mars matches Sock Monkey, and The 50s Have Called.

Vodka & OJ: Named after one of my favorite drinks, this rich orange is sure to please anyone who finds sunny colors appealing. Vodka & OJ matches Hogtown, and Hogtown Special.

Weathered Wood: Gray weathered wood. A dilapidated house too long in the salt and sun and wind. Storm clouds rolling in over the water. Days so dark you'd swear that it's night; nor'easters, hurricanes. Hours spent looking out of the living room window of the house I lived in, as a child, on the ocean; watching waves swell and seagrass blow, and not being able to tell where the ocean ended and the sky began. Driftwood. Fog. Silver and smoke. This colorway is all of those things, and more. Weathered Wood matches The 40s Have Called, and The 50s Have Called.

I started dyeing yarn professionally for Hanks Yarn and Fiber in 2007, and have continued with HaldeCraft HandDyed since 2011. If you are looking for photos of yarn colorways or finished objects and are on Ravelry, you can find my yarn in their database; just look for "HaldeCraft HandDyed".

All of my yarns are hand-dyed singly or in batches of two. If you would like to order for a large project, please contact me and I will be more than happy to dye your order with every attempt to get each skein as matching as possible. However, as with all hand-dyes (not just my own) I recommend working from alternating balls on larger projects as even yarns dyed at the same time may not be perfectly matched.

This yarn was dyed in a smoke-free, but not pet-free home; however, once dyed it is kept sealed in bins which cats and dogs do not have access to.
