Self striping yarn inspired by the scene where Master gives Dobby a sock and he is free! 'Master has given Dobby clothes'

The yarn is a six stripe repeat and will stripe as follows;

Black
Navy
Speckled Pale Tan (Dobby colour)
Speckled Green (his eyes)
Grey
Bright Green - Dobby is free!

Available to order on the following yarn bases:

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

50g 75% superwash merino 25% nylon (50g/200m fingering weight)

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

100g 80% sw merino 20% nylon high twist (100g/365m)

There's an option of adding a 20g 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.
