Product Description

Sassafras is a mix of browns and grays inspired by my favorite pastime, rock climbing. Within two hours of my home I can climb on granite slabs and basalt columns. The rocks are mottled in appearance and because of the dampness, there is always a some sort of vegetation growing in the cracks, adding a touch of green to the dark colors.


Entice is a luxurious blend of 70% merino, 20% cashmere and 10%
nylon with Hazel Knits signature tight twist. Even softer than Artisan sock, yet has the same beautiful stitch definition an durability, Entice is perfect for next-to-the-face knits or those extra special socks.

  • 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon
  • 400 yards, 113 grams (skeins put up by yardage, weight may have slight variance.)
  • 7-9 stitches per inch
  • US size 1-3 needle

Recommended care:

Handwash in tepid water. Lay flat to dry. Although this yarn has a high superwash merino content, we do not recommend
machine washing or drying.
