Preorder - Autumn in Tokyo
These preorder skeins have a LEAD TIME OF 4-5 WEEKS.
I’m so happy to introduce the special collab colorway, “Autumn In Tokyo” that I’ve created with Mina of @knittingexpat to go along with her Tokyo socks pattern for her #aroundtheworldin8socks collection! When Mina came to me requesting a custom colorway inspired by torii gates (symbolic gates usually found in Shinto temples) to go along with her sock pattern inspired by her visit to Tokyo, I was more than happy to oblige 😊⛩! “Autumn in Tokyo” is inspired by the iconic, bright orange-red of torii gates as well as the beautiful autumnal leaves around them as seasons change. It’s still a bit early for fall, but I think the fiery orange-red fits in nicely with summer, and would be the perfect transitional colorway into autumn 🍁.

All skeins are carefully dyed with acid dye, washed and rinsed, however some bleeding may still occur. Each skein is unique and therefore colors may vary slightly from one to the next. Due to differences between monitors and screens, actual colors may also vary from what is shown. I recommend handwashing in cool water. Listing is for one skein only!
