The Grinch - self striping sock yarn with 20g mini skein
Stripey Cat Yarns 3
Regular price £28.50
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;
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.
