TWO new colourways - Nutcracker & Blame it on the Weatherman --- Pre-orders for repeatable colourways are open for a limited time!



Nutcracker - SOCK BLANK - hand dyed sock blank with 20g mini skein

Stripey Cat Yarns 3

Regular price £24.50

Tax included.

This listing is for sock blank sock sets.. what’s a sock blank you ask? It’s a knitted fabric made on a knitting machine using the yarn which is then dyed. You knit it directly from the blank & it creates a unique pooling striping effect on your sock. (you can cake it if you so wish before you knit) 

Nutcracker is a brand new colourway for Christmas 2021 inspired by the Nutcracker soldiers 🎄

The sock blank is dyed in sections with liquid dye & speckled to include all of the following colours;

Burgundy

Red

Gold

Green

Mint

Fawn


The contrast colourway is a semi solid skein of the Fawn colour which just ties all of the colours together.



Available on the following yarn bases;

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

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

Dyed to order just for you - dispatching in 7-10 days 🧡

The yarn is hand dyed in small batches with professional dyes in a smoke-free environment. Each sock blank & skein is hand dyed individually so final results will vary. With sock blank knitting with 1 strand as these are your socks will be sisters rather than twins; so not identical or matching. Part of the charm & fun I think!


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.
