Sock Yarns.

Bluefaced Leicester/Nylon High-Twist Sock.

80% Bluefaced Leicester wool (from UK), 20% Nylon.

Weight approx 365m(405yards) per 100g.

Our standard sock yarn is made from this classic british wool noted for its softness and lustre. To ensure that it is provides a hardwearing base for socks the wool has been combined with nylon and spun with a high twist to make it extra sturdy

The high twist gives give an excellent stitch definition making this sock yarn also ideal for shawls and scarves.


100% S.American Alpaca.

Weight approx 367m(400yards) per 100g.

This fibre of this yarn superfine alpaca making it super soft and drapey. The yarn also has a delicate halo that helps emphasise how soft it is. While 'sock-weight' we wouldn't recommend it for sock knitting (with the possible exception of bed-socks) but is ideal for scarves, shawls, cowls or hats. As the yarn is pure alpaca the it dyes up with much softer tones than wool-based yarns.
