A 100g skein of 4ply Sock Wool. This yarn is not 100% British. It is a blend of 50% British Mohair, 50% British Falkland/South American Corriedale spun in Yorkshire and hand dyed in Dorset.
Although this yarn does not contain Nylon, it is suitable for socks because of its Mohair content. Mohair is sometimes described as 'Nature's Nylon' due to its strength and durability. The yarn has a wonderful lustre that is difficult to photograph, although every effort has been taken to photograph this yarn accurately.
Each 100g skein is approximately 400m in length.
The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires gentle hand washing unless you intend to create felt.
Please note that although every effort has been made to represent the yarn colour correctly, colours may vary on computer monitors so the shade may not be identical to what you see on your screen.
A slight bleeding of colour may occur in the first wash. This is nothing to be concerned about and is common with hand dyed yarns. If you find you are getting more colour bleeding than acceptable, please don't hesitate to contact me.
