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.

Heather Sock Yarn.

100% Merino wool.

Weight approx 400m(440yards) per 100g.

This is a new sock weight that we have introduced as a non-sock yarn. It is a 3ply consisting of one superwash single and two standard singles. given that superwash treatment leads to differential dye take up this leads to a lovely heather effect that in some dye jobs leads to an almost handspun look. The yarn is very plump and so this combined with the merino base and 3ply construction means that this is not a particularly hardwearing yarn so should be only used for light-wear or house socks. It can however be used for a variety of other projects such as shawls, scarves hats and jumpers.
