Teton Yarn Company Hand Dyed Mountain Sock Yarn, a durable but soft, 4 ply Superwash Merino Sock Yarn with generous yardage with the right amount of twist to hold up to socks but soft enough to wear next to the skin for a variety of projects such as shawls, shawlettes, baby blankets, wraps, gloves and hats. This is my go to sock yarn for my husband and friends as the Tetons are hard on socks but this one holds up time and time again.
Colorway: Granite After being formed by volcanic activity deep within the depths of the earth the granite core of the Tetons began pushing up through ancient layers of limestone and slate eight to ten millions years ago, forming the Teton Range that we know and love today. As the granite pushed up, the limestone broke and buckled under the pressure, dropping to form the valley floor on the east side and pushed up on the western side to form the western side of the Teton Range.

Dyeing: Teton Yarn Company uses color fast acid dyes on all our yarns. My yarns are all hand dyed by me in my yarn studio in Teton Valley, Idaho. Yarns are dyed in groups of 2-3 in most cases and I do my best to ensure consistency in each batch, however, there will be some variation even within a dye lot. Different dye lots will be siblings, rather than twins, so it is recommended you order enough for a project in one order for best results.
