Proper Sock – Tracy Chapman


Our Proper Sock yarn is specifically designed for knitting everyday wearable socks. With 25% nylon it’s durable. And the 75% wool gives a beautifully soft feel.

Elmarie named this colour to honour Tracy Chapman and her song Fast Cars in particular.

SKU: SK-01045 Category:

Fast Car was the lead single on Tracy Chapman’s debut studio album, released in April 1988.  Elmarie is a car fan, and the colours made her think of the car lights in the Fast and Furious movies, and the fluorescent lights of the city at night.
If you’re looking to combine it in a colourwork project make it the star of the show, like Tracy Chapman herself, and add Indigo, Airforce, Rainforest or Sage as the supporting acts.

Since our colours are hand dyed in small batches there is variation between batches, and even within a batch.  We have a process and ingredients for each colour recipe, but can’t control how the colours “land” each time.
If you’re looking for a sweater quantity please let us know and we will dye up a batch specially for you.
