Shaftsbury Socks pattern

$5.00

Inspired by the home-town of fiber farmer Tammy White, the Shaftsbury Socks feature a simple slip-stitch texture for an easy yet engaging knit. Tammy is a master craftswoman, especially at the dye pots, where she uses her farm-grown dyestuffs to create beautiful natural colors. This yarn is seasonally available from Wing & a Prayer Farm as it is milled and dyed up in small batches. You may have to be patient at times to snag a skein, but it’s well worth the wait!
