Mandarin Duck by Lake Tahoe Yarn Company
Truckee, CA 530-587-1060
100% superwash Merino
5 sts=1" on US #7
The colors are inspired by a photograph that the owner put on the label. It's a mandarin duck. The colors of the yarn didn't photograph well. The dark color isn't black, it's a rich teal. That teal next to the orange and brown is visually exciting.
This yarn will make beautiful socks for me. I like thicker socks. Honestly, I like knitting socks in thicker yarns because they are faster to knit. Sock weight yarns require smaller needles which aren't as comfortable to knit with my hands.
