Tombstone | Basic Sock | 420 yds

$32.00 (CAD)

Tombstone began as a mystery Halloween yarn.  It is inspired by the super bright green moss that I saw growing up the side of headstones while wandering through a nearby cemetery with my dog.

I started taking pictures of textures and colours and very quickly I realized it was the lichen and the moss that was capturing my attention. The brightness of the greens stood out against the stone and I began to reflect on how plant life will grow from any crack, any crevice it can find. “Life finds a way!” as said by Ian Malcolm and is so apparent in such a place of death and memory.

In this colourway, Tombstone, that’s what I attempted to capture. The age of the stone, the neverending forward momentum of time, and the bright spots that appear regardless how dark or old things get. Sometimes growing slowly, sometimes not really noticeable at all until they are right in front of your nose, but there are bright spots, joy, love, smiles, even in the darkest of moments.

The bright green is speckled only halfway up the skeins to give that sense of movement…moss crawling up the sides but not completely overtaking.

1 Ready To Ship - additional skeins will be dyed to order - allow 1-2 weeks for creation and delivery


80% superwash merino 20% nylon
115g/420 yards per skein

If you would like three or more skeins, a new batch will be dyed for you to ensure they match as closely as possible.

Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind.  Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
