  1. 9/23/20-what is the yarn on your instagram post on this date? Blues, pinks, purples medium pastel colors. Could be a tread weight to sock weight. Thank you

    1. Hello Franque,
      I think the yarn in the post you are referring to is from Ring a Rosie yarns in the UK – there is a web shop so you can buy online.
      This is a sock weight and the lady who owns the shop – Barbara dyes it all herself.
      She has some wonderful colours.
      I hope that helps!
      Louise 🙂
