Tenderfoot 80/20 is our fingering weight PDS yarn. Soft with a subtle sheen, this yarn is good for all sorts of projects from lacy shawls to socks that will bring your feet joy. Hand dyed in Whitefish, Montana, the colors are inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape.Tenderfoot 80/20 is a plied yarn giving it good stitch definition and combined with the 20% nylon will make lovely socks that wear well through time.
If you see a colorway called FREE SPIRIT (not always available), and love it, snap it up quick. Our FREE SPIRIT's are one-of-a-kind colorways. Some days it's just fun for us to spend time in the studio without measuring and keeping detailed logs. We just happily paint yarn, and our FREE SPIRITS are the products of these days. We make these colors in limited batches, so make sure to buy all you need for your project. Once they are gone, they are gone forever.
