Item details

This listing is for a hand painted black and blue hank of 4 ply 75% merino 25% nylon sock yarn. This yarn has been dyed to be self-striping and will come in two small separate hanks. The yarn was dyed in one skein and separated into two before delivery so your socks will match perfectly, provided you start from the same end of each separate hank. The finished sock in the photo above are a ladies size 9 and was knit from the toe up.

Each skein is hand painted and therefore unique. Variations exist even when yarn is dyed together in the same lot. I re-skein all the yarn I dye to prevent tangles, so the yarn might look slightly different from the pictures. Regardless of the difference between the photo and actual yarn, the colours will still pattern in the exact same way.

75% Superwash Merino 25% Nylon
423m/463yds per 100g/3.5oz
Gauge is approximately 7 stitches per inch
Suggested needle size 3mm (US 2)
