You might remember a while ago when we ran a contest to rename our Essential sock yarn – well the winner was “Stroll”! Not too long ago, we got our first shipment of some colors with the new name on the label, so depending on what color you order, you might get to see the new labels. I just wanted to remind everyone that Stroll is exactly the same fiber content (75% superwash Merino, 25% nylon) and gauge (7 – 8 sts = 1″ on US 1 – 3 needles) and is 4-ply just like Essential – same colors, too.
Over the next couple months, more and more colors will come in with the Stroll name on the label. In August, we will switch the name in our catalog and here on our web site. You’ll still be able to find projects on Ravelry for Essential, but you’ll also start to see projects using the new name Stroll there too (we’re working on getting a pretty feature photo up).
