Our local Law Enforcement Officers are committed to enhancing community safety, reducing fear of crime, and elevating the quality of life through partnerships and innovative policing initiatives. That's why $5 from the sale of each skein of this colorway will go to the Deputy Derek Geer Memorial Fund. Deputy Geer was killed in the line of duty in 2016. He is survived by his wife and their two children.
This is a limited colorway and only available on Rhode Island Red base (Serama Sock and DK Sock are sold out.)

For best results, handknit items should be handwashed in tepid water and laid flat to dry. Superwash yarn CAN be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle (but not advised), then laid flat to dry.
Yarn dyeing is done at home in my back room and air-dried by God. We are a non-smoking home with a cat that roams around our back room and yard. He is afraid of the dyeing equipment and special care is taken so that he does not get onto the yarn - he's too old and arthritic to jump up on the table anyway.
Due to the nature of hand-dyed yarns being unique, the skein you receive may vary slightly from the photo shown. If you have questions about the skein, please contact me and I will answer any questions you may have.
