WYS Country Birds
Thanks for the super fast service - beautiful yarn!
I have tried out dozens of self-striping sock yarns, and none of them come close to the WYS standard. Stunning colourways and complex designs; pair with contrasting WYS solids to achieve sock perfection. The addition of 30% Blue Leicester wool means the fabric blooms beautifully and doesn't pill. I cannot recommend highly enough.
I bought the WYS Country Birds Wood Pigeon and the WYS Liquorice (black) as a gift for a friend. My friends loves Fair Isle patterns and is always making things for others. The lovely colours in Wood Pigeon are colours she wears, and the WYS sock yarn is a fantastic yarn to work with and to wear, so whatever my friend decides to use her yarn for, it will be beautiful. 😊
