Testing, testing 1,2,3
Testing fibres is important to me, I sample lots of my blends, this picture is of some of my pick n mix batts spun and knitted.
Each ply is made of one of the different colour batts, when you knit with it you get a tweedy type fabric.
All the colours above were made with variations of just 6 batts, each is a blend of Merino, Shetland and nylon for strength. If you knit it up at the sort of tension I have then you would get great socks, but you could do lot's more than that as it's still a relatively soft blend.
If you can't decide what colours you like I've put some ideas as the last photos of the listings, or I'm more than happy to take photos of 3 colours you have in mind.
