Gnomestick - Slasher Sock 2.0
If you like retro science fiction, you need to watch Turbo Kid. One of the weapons wielded in this movie is a gnome, taped to a stick. Aka, a Gnomestick (we all need one of these I think).
This colorway is based on the character Apple in the movie, who wears bright colors and has a sunny outlook on post-apocalyptic life.
This is one of our 'half dunk' colorways, which means that the 2 ends of the skein have a distinctly different color, with the colors meeting up in the middle. This yarn will pool/flash depending on how this colorway is knitted up. For sock knitters: you will probably get spiral or staggered lines out of this yarn.
Slasher Sock 2.0 is durable, warm, and really easy to work with. This blend of soft 75% superwash virgin wool and 25% nylon is versatile enough to be used for projects that call for a sturdy yarn that can take a beating. Slasher 2.0 is softer than most commercial 75/25 blend yarns out there. However, virgin wool is coarser than purely Merino yarn. Slasher is soft enough for durable garments as well as socks, blankets, and crochet projects.
This version replaces our old Slasher Sock and has the same characteristics. It takes the dye very vividly, is smooth to work with and comes in slightly shorter wound skeins.
