To develop a great sock yarn, famed colorist & knitwear designer Kristin Nicholas has put her creative imagination to work and partnered with Nashua Handknits. "Best Foot Forward" or "BFF" for short has Kristin's superb color combinations in a self-patterning wool blend for your lightweight projects. Kristin has designed "Best Foot Forward" to mimic her Fair Isle designs usually knitted in various hues of her Julia yarn. She combines solid stripes of color with some "faux" Fair Isle bands so that you can look as if you've taken days to create such spectacular designs instead of a few hours. Beautifully crafted in Italy of 75% warm wool & 25% snap-back nylon.
