Sea Nettles – January 2024 Tiger Club

Sea Nettles brings some needed warmth and color to this time of year! This isn’t the first time I’ve dyed a jellyfish themed club offering (see Jelly from February 2018), but there are so many fun pictures of these transparent wonders backlight with amazing gradient colors that I couldn’t resist doing another one. This also gave me the opportunity to incorporate Pantone’s color of the year, Peach Fuzz, within the gradient from rich gold to pinks to scarlet.

The sock yarn is a new one I’m trying out, you’ll have to let me know what you think. It’s similar in content to my popular (and personal favorite) Safari, with 75% Superwash Wool and 25% Nylon…however it’s recycled Nylon, which I appreciate. It’s a 4ply instead of Safari’s 3ply, more tightly spun making a smoother yarn. It’s a little more dense, so while you are still getting 430 yards, it’s 100 grams compared to Safari’s 4 oz.

Anyway, I decided to try my hand at a repeating gradient for this yarn. While I did count as I wound the yarn, there’s a lot of organic process in that (and wandering thoughts?) so don’t drive yourself crazy trying to make your socks match perfectly, although they should be nicely fraternal.

Superwash Merino and Nylon is also on deck for the fiber this month, perfect for socks or any other project you’d like to be hard wearing, yet soft. I dyed this in a straight up gradient, but do feel free to break it up to do whatever you want. This fiber is equally happy being spun woolen or worsted or anything in between.
