Stripey Cat Yarns 3

Regular price £28.50

Ying & Yang is a sock set I designed to be knit up as odd socks - they are both a self striping sock yarn which stripes as follows when you knit.

Kay Jones designed a pattern called Umbrella socks which used this set. You can find her pattern on Ravelry. Photograph copyright Kay Jones.

Available to order on the following yarn bases:

2x50g Merino/Nylon -  75% superwash merino 25% nylon & 20g/80m mini skein (100g/400m fingering weight)

2x100g Merino/Nylon - 75% superwash merino 25% nylon

You have the choice of a 20g grey mini skein or 6x10g neon mini skeins (the darker shade of neon pink, orange, yellow, green, blue & purple as photographed) to knit contrasting heels, toes & cuffs. 

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.
