A Superwash Merino/nylon sock yarn that takes dye gorgeously and has ample yardage. This versatile sock yarn is suitable for projects for socks to shawls to garments. Ex Libris is a Latin phrase often found on bookplates, and translates to “From the Library.” Ex Libris Fibers hand-dyed yarns are bookish, moody, atmospheric, sometimes quirky, and commonly vintage-reminiscent. Based in Pittsburgh, dyer Rita (she/her/hers) is a librarian by day and hopes that working with these storied colors will bring you joy and remind you of your favorite book experiences - or help you to tell your own fiber stories!
