Autumn Rainbow - self striping sock yarn with optional 20g mini skein

Stripey Cat Yarns 3

Regular price £29.50

Tax included.

Inspired by my absolute favourite season & the autumnal colours Autumn Rainbow is a self striping yarn which stripes as follows when knitted:

Burgundy

Burnt Orange

Warm Mustard Yellow

Avocado Green

Sea Blue

Pale Fawn

This colour way is available to order on the following yarn bases:


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

100g 100% non sw highland wool (nylon free) (100g/400m) - this base doesn’t contain nylon so the fabric needs to be knitted as a tight gauge to be hard wearing and long lasting. I personally have knit socks using non superwash nylon free yarn and they lasted a whole lot less time than my socks with nylon. I accept no responsibility for the longevity of socks knit with this yarn. 


There's an option of adding a 20g burnt orange coloured 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.
