Available to order on the following yarn bases:

100g Merino/Nylon -  75% superwash merino 25% nylon & 20g/80m mini skein (100g/400m fingering weight)

The self striping yarn comes with a 20g Dark Green mini skein to knit contrasting heels, toes & cuffs. This will be sent to you on the same base as the main skein.

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.
