A new addition to the Green Tea Yarn bases this 8 ply sock base is the perfect answer the question of what to use for a sweater, a heavier shawl or a cowl.


Wild Orchid is a deep rich totally luschious purple/red/pink - one of those colours that really sings to me. I've played around getting it just so and being a little indecisive about it but really love what I've settled on. The colours are pretty accurate on my screen (unusual for something in the red end of the spectrum where I usually have to play for hours to get them right). Tonal variation throughout the skein ranging from fuschia to claret to burgundy with a glazing of something darker. Absolutely gorgeous I promise you!
