Sorting Hat self striping sock yarn with 20g mini skein

Stripey Cat Yarns 3

Regular price £28.50

Tax included.

Sorting hat is inspired by a fabulously critical scene in the first book/film of Harry Potter the Philosopher's Stone.

Sorting Hat is a self striping yarn which will stripe when you knit as follows; 

Warm brown (5-6 rows)

Burgundy red - Gryffindor (2-3 rows)

Yellow - Hufflepuff (2-3 rows)


Blue - Ravenclaw (2-3 rows)


Green - Slytherin (2-3 rows)

Available to order on the following yarn bases:

100g 75% superwash merino 25% nylon (100g/400m fingering weight)

50g 75% superwash merino 25% nylon (50g/200m fingering weight)

100g 75% sw bfl 25% nylon (100g/400m fingering weight)

100g 80% sw merino 20% nylon high twist (100g/365m)

100g 75% sw merino 20% nylon 5% silver stellina (100g/365m)

The self striping yarn comes in a set with a 20g mini skein for contrasting cuffs, heels and toes in the Warm brown colour. 


Based on gauge of 10 stitches per inch you will get 2-3 rows per stripe. I used a 2.5mm needle & knitted my sock using the 75% sw merino/25% nylon base.

The yarn is hand dyed in small batches with professional dyes in a smoke-free environment.

All yarns are sent out in a skein/hank. 

Though this yarn is washable, I recommend hand-washing your finished object with a wool wash such as euculan. Minimal colour bleeding may occur during the first few washes, so please wash apart from other items.
