  • £28.00
    Unit price per 
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 stripes)                                                                                  Burgundy red - Gryffindor                                                                                      Yellow - Hufflepuff
Blue - Ravenclaw
Green - Slytherin

Available to order on the following yarn bases:

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

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.
