|Amble is a wonderful, rich earthy colored sock yarn. I love the fact that The Fibre Co. used a recycled nylon. It seems a bit hairy to knit with and not as squishy soft as some of our other yarns, but it's lovely after a soak!
I may not wear this right next to my skin, but with a t shirt under it, I think the colorwork possibilities are endless!!
|I can't say enough about this yarn! The colors are absolutely to die for. It has just enough of a halo to create some texture without hiding all the intricacies of a lace pattern. It creates a wonderfully warm fabric perfect for socks, garments, or accessories.
