Late Summer News: Felici. Is. Back.
A circle of colorful Felici self-striping sock yarns

The sun is just about to start setting on this sweltering summer season (at least for us folks in the northern hemisphere), but don’t worry. There’s still time to partake in a few lazy afternoon picnics in the park accompanied by your current WIP, or as I like to call them, pic-knits. If you’re looking for a little fiber/pattern inspo to ride out the dog days with, read on!

Arriving fashionably “late” this summer, our newest batch of Felici sock yarns was inspired by vivid memories of technicolor sunsets and epic sessions of childhood make-believe. With 9 new colors and 1 oldie for good measure (I’m looking at you, Vampire Vibes), this round of limited edition colorways packs a fruity punch of late summer goodness. We love these patterns for Felici: Love is Love Socks, Vanilla Twist Cowl, or Frankenfingers
