I dyed Flash Dance as a midi set, you will receive 6x50g/200m 75% superwash merino/25% nylon. I dyed it with Stephen West’s Dotted Ray’s in mind but it’d be fabulous to use to knit socks, hats, shawls, cowls - you name it! Lovely & vibrant.

I will also have some sock sets with each of the individual skeins of Flash Dance which will come with a charcoal black 20g mini skein dyed on merino/nylon sock.
