80/20 Sock

Lichen and Lace's hand dyeing studio is in tiny Sackville, New Brunswick and it must be an inspiring kind of place! At least one gets that impression when browsing the delightful colours of Lichen and Lace yarns. Colours named Marsh Lily, Clover, Beach Glass, and Lichen really paint a beautiful, pastoral picture of this maritime town settled in the middle of a marsh.  The yarn is hand dyed loveliness and made in Canada charming!

Since Lichen and Lace is made by hand each skein is an original. Colour comes out more vividly in some skeins than others and there are often colour changes from batch to batch. This one-of-a-kindness makes each skein a treat; full of individuality and artistry. If you are planning a project that uses more than one skein you may want to try alternating your skeins as you knit to make the colour more uniform.

The 80/20 variety from Lichen and Lace is a fingering weight yarn comprised of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. Great for, but not limited to sock knitting. Try is for shawls, sweaters, and whatever else strikes your fancy.

In 2024 Lichen and Lace changed their sock base to an organic merino. You can find more 80/20 colours in this new base HERE.
