Item details


Fingering / sock weight
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
100 g (4 oz) = 400 yards
2 ply high twist

This 80/20 fingering weight, sock yarn is a lovely, soft yarn that is a dream to knit with. It would be great for socks, a hat or cowl, or if you would like a larger project, two hanks would make a perfect shawl or generous scarf to wrap around your neck on chilly days. The high twist gives it great stitch definition.

Although this is a superwash, I still recommend to hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry. This will protect the colour and texture of the yarn over time.

I dye my yarn in small batches, however, no hand-dyed yarn is identical. The colour placement is often dependent on its placement within the kettle and therefore each skein will have its own individual look.

I use only high-quality yarn and professional grade dyes for best results.

Please note – while every attempt is made to ensure the yarns show true to colour, each computer screen is different and therefore the colours you see on your screen may be slightly different from the live version.

CUSTOM ORDERS: While I am not currently taking custom orders, if you would like a colourway I carry in my shop but that is currently out of stock, please let me know and I will do my best to provide.

If you have any questions not addressed above – please feel free to message me!
