Item details

Spotted by the Nautilus research ship last year, this particular Stubby (Bobtail) Squid looks like a lost toy with painted-on googly eyes! I've been wanting to create a colourway based on this little guy since I first saw the video clip so here it is!

It is superwash treated 4ply sock yarn that's dreamily soft and smooth with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for strength and durability. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 84 metres per 20g mini skein. The dye is UV reactive so it glows under blacklight and your Stubby Squid will look like it's lit up by a submersible's headlights.

This yarn is presented as a miniskein. 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 bright self striping, variegated, speckled and rainbow colourways:
