Scrumptiouspurl ‘Stripe Me Up’ and “Toes & Heels” Minis

Scrumptiouspurl is a family owned business based right here in Montreal, Canada producing beautiful, thoughtfully hand-dyed yarns and fibers in a modern palette. Stripe Me Up is a stunningly vibrant sock yarn that is sure to put fun into your sock knitting (and wearing!). This yarn produces a predictable 3 stripe repeat with approximately six rows of each color on a 64 stitch sock. The yarn is dyed using professional acid dyes free of heavy metals.

We are also very happy to announce that we have just added Scrumptiouspurl “Toes & Heels Minis” in 20 coordinating colourways (9 shown above)!  How will you coordinate your pairings – highlight or contrast? 🙂
