Item details

Inspired by fizzy sweeties my children always want to buy from the newsagent down the lane from our home. Dreadful things full of artificial flavours and strange E numbers, but they are beautiful to look at with their bright colours and sour sugar coating. This yarn captures the visual experience with none of the dental or metabolic harms!

It is a superwash treated DK sock yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 25% nylon for strength and durability. Suitable for 4-5mm needles. Around 224 metres per 100g skein.

It knits really delightful socks but it's also more than soft enough for any other next-to-the-skin project.

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 yarn then take a look in our shop as we have many unique colourways including rainbows, self striping and miniskeins:

FAQs

No, I’d like you to buy some yarn!

Wholesale prices are 2/3 retail prices plus postage with a minimum purchase of 20 skeins or equivalent weight of yarn.

Almost all my yarn is superwash treated, so you can use the wool cycle on your washing machine, although hand washing is kinder if you have the time. I choose acid dyes rated “wash fast” or “very wash fast” at 30*C, and I test wash each colourway. Nonetheless it is sensible to wash items separately on the first occasion as with any fibre or garment. If you put my yarn in on long hot washes with fast spins, harsh detergents and stain remover they will age and fade much faster. This is not my fault, wool is like that, and you make your choices.
