Limnion(n.) – lower and colder layer, diminutive of the Greek for “lake”
I had the pleasure of spending the Christmas holiday in Minnesota at my partner’s mother’s house.
She gifted me these beautiful natural brown and tan yarns from Goth Farm Yarn and I just knew they had to be stocking cap inspired by that lake.
The Limnion Stocking Cap’s color work patterning is meant to convey the strata of a lake, where different types of organisms thrive, even with a thick layer of ice on top. The stocking wears with a long floppy pom- pom on the end and the red alpaca and Navajo churro are incredibly warm for ice fishing and ski trips.
