100g skein of sock yarn, enough to knit a beautiful pair of socks. Naturally dyed with oak apples (oak galls) modified with iron to produce a subtle, pearly grey.
The yarn is 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon for strength. Approximately 400m. Recommended needles 2.5 - 4mm. Gauge (Stocking Stitch) 28 st x 36 rows oven 10cm/4" on 3.25mm needles.
This yarn has been hand dyed with natural products. Although it has been rinsed, rinsed and rinsed again there may be some 'bleeding' of colour when first washed. This is nothing to worry about, but you may want to wash your finished socks (or other garment) before wearing.
Washing: Hand wash or gentle machine wash at 30 degrees maximum with mild detergent. Tumble dry on LOW setting only. Do not bleach. Cool iron only.
