Knitting, Socks, Wool, Yarn

Steampunk Sock Yarn

Hey Everyone!

Last week, I had ordered a couple of Hanks of yarn from Forbidden Fiber Company.

I had ordered a hank of the Victoria’s Memory yarn on the Babel base, as well as a hank of the Erie Canal Yarn, on the Fortitude Base.

I have been wanting to try the Babel yarn since I came across it and the company. Apparently it’s pretty popular since most of the colorways that were done in the Babel base were sold out. I finally found a color that I liked that still had it available on the Babel base. The Babel yarn base is made up of the following fiber content: 70% superwash merino, 20% Nylon and 10% yak. I have never worked with Yak fiber before, and I am curious to see what I think (even though 10% isn’t much). The Fortitude yarn base is 100% superwash merino, and it is the same yarn base I got the Fraser’s Ridge colorway on.

This hank is the Victoria’s Memory colorway on the Babel base

This is the Erie Canal Colorway on the Fortitude base.

There are a couple more Hanks of the Steampunk Collection that I am planning on getting in the near future.

Before I start in on the Steampunk Collection Socks, I am finishing up the last pair of “Scottish” socks I have been working on. I have recently knit up two Outlander inspired pairs of sock, and the pair I am working on is called Inverness, so I am wanting to get this pair done before I move on.
