Product Description

Lichen comes in many tones and hues, depending on where in the world you live. Growing up in the high desert of southern Idaho, our lichen was a bright, golden green color. It grows on the basalt rocks that are prevalent leftovers from ancient volcanic activity. This colorway is reminiscent of mother nature's splash of color that brightens up the reddish brown rocks and the dry, blowing grasses in this beautiful (and sometimes under-appreciated) climate.

With nine tightly twisted plies, Piquant Lite has incredible stitch definition and durability. The 10% added nylon makes this an excellent choice for socks. A bit thinner than the Artisan Sock yarn will broaden the appeal of this yarn for many.

  • 400 yards, 110 grams (skeins put up by yardage, weight may have slight variance.)
  • 90% superwash merino, 10% nylon
  • 8 stitches per inch
  • Needle: US 1-2; 2.25-2.75mm

Recommended care:

Hand launder with mild, wool friendly soap in tepid water. Lay flat to dry.

May be machine washed on gentle cycle and machine dried at low temperature.

Listed gauge is for sock knitting. May be knit at a looser gauge for shawls, sweaters and other accessories.
