Enya Sock.... Antique Bronze 2 OOAK 1 Knot 15% Off Superwash Merino, super soft with extra twist for socks. I love the way this yarn dyes. The extra twist makes the dyes sparkle like little beads. Dapple Solid dye technique. Some peeps missed out on the Antique Bronze so by request another batch of Antique Bronze. This batch is a touch more linen toned but very similar. Not a perfect dyelot match if your trying to match up from the first batch.
Colors: Soft golds and tans that have been overdyed with a soft green based bronze. So it has a very subtle green tint(this batch has a touch less green tint to it and more linen) to it but it reads gold like. Similar to Antique Pear but more Bronzy toned. So hard to describe but I love it. Dyed also to go with Lavender Fields in this update.
As with all images Flickr gives the best representation of the color. Please double check with the Preview pics on Flickr.

For knitting socks I use 0-2 US size needle depending on gauge and stitch.
Lace 4-7 US needle depending on gauge and stitch. These are just estimates that I have used in the past, with socks I knit using a size 0, for Lace it is far more subjective to you project.
Handwash cool water, air dry flat.
Note, this is superwash so it can go in the machine but I still prefer to hand wash for longevity. Color bleeding can be normal for hand dyed yarns. I take special care when setting dyes and I thoroughly rinse the yarns. Blues and reds can be difficult to completely exhaust. A good tip is to add some distilled white vinegar to your final rinse water; it will stop the bleeding. I also recommend using a gentle wool wash such as Soak, Eucalan. I always use luke warm water for my knits and handwash even if it is superwash.
All of my yarns are dyed with professional dyes for light and wash fastness. I strive to take the best pictures possible but please remember that computer screens may vary with color.
