Item details

An industrial accident has taken place. Fortunately no one was hurt when an explosion occurred in a sparkly paint factory(!)

If you smiled as you groaned then this may just be the perfect yarn for you.....

Splattered with speckles of every colour of the rainbow and glittering with silver stellina, this sock yarn truly is spectacular! It's also dreamily soft and squooshy, a real pleasure to knit with, and gives excellent stitch definition.

Each skein has the same amount of the same nine colours of dye but the distribution is different every time. This means each skein will look unique both before and after knitting up. The last picture shows "Industrial Accident" on aran knitted up as a hat. A sock in this colourway will look similar.

It is superwash treated 4ply sock yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 20% nylon for strength and durability, and 5% silver stellina for a pretty sparkle. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 400 metres per 100g skein.

This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time. The listing for my caking service is here:

If you love a hand-dyed sock or shawl yarn then take a look in our shop as we have some lovely solid and semisolid colours as well as many unique variegated shades, stripes, rainbows and colour combinations:
