Vancouver, WA- You’ll love experimenting with Knit Picks’ new line of Kettle Dye yarns with our new sock of the month set. Our new Kettle Dye yarns are made from the same soft, quality Merino wool/nylon blend as our Essential fingering weight sock yarn that our knitters know and love, but with a new twist. 

 “I don’t know how it’s possible for colors to be intensely saturated and yet subtle at the same time, but these kettle-dyed yarns have that beautiful, rich look. The tonal shifts in the colors are mesmerizing as you knit, and the vibrant hues really show off stitch patterns well. Each batch of yarn is hand-dyed by artisans using techniques passed down through the generations, so you feel like you’re touching history as you knit,” enthuses Tina Birch. 

When you buy a sock of the month sampler, you will receive enough sock yarn for six months’ worth of socks (if you knit a pair a month) along with six exclusive new sock patterns specially designed to showcase the beauty of the Kettle Dye yarn. You’ll also have the opportunity to join our sock of the month knitalong in Knit Picks’ online Knitting Community ( where you can show off your progress and get advice from other knitters and Knit Picks staff working on the same projects. The samplers are available in two colorways, a Fall/Winter sampler and a Spring/Summer sampler. Buy both to get enough yarn to knit a whole year’s worth of socks!
