The Grinch - self striping sock yarn with 20g mini skein

Stripey Cat Yarns 3

Regular price £28.50

Tax included.

A fun festive holiday yarn inspired by The Grinch - one of my favourite Christmas movies. I originally dyed this in 2020 for my Christmas in July colourway!

The yarn is dyed to order & will be dispatched by the end of September 2021 to give plenty of time to knit a pair of socks for the festive period if you so desire. 

I recommend ordering your festive yarn on it’s own unless you are happy to wait for everything to be dispatched at the end of September.

It is a self striping sock yarn which stripes when you knit as follows;

Grey Skies

Grinch Green

Snowy White

Festive Red


Speckled Lime & Yellow (fairy lights twinkling)

Available to order on the following yarn bases:

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

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

Sparkle Merino/Nylon - 100g 75% sw merino 20% nylon 5% silver stellina (100g/365m fingering weight)

You will receive a Speckled Lime & Yellow 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.
