This week’s shop preview is up! We’re on Sock Week, with a fabulous selection of bright zingy colourways for you. And we’re introducing a gorgeous new base:
A sock weight yarn, made from 60% superwash merino, 20% silk, 20% yak. 400 yards (365m) per 100g. Recommended needle size is 3mm (US 3). £13.00 (excluding VAT), £15.60 (including VAT) per 100g skein.
Ophelia is extremely soft and luxurious, a little more robust than Natasha or Audrey, but almost as soft. Naturally the yarn is a soft oatmealy grey (we’ve held some skeins back from being dyed, because it’s such a nice colour that I think you’ll like it bare and naked). It has a nice crisp twist to it, and will give great stitch definition.
I also want to tell you a little more about Kirsten Sock, because she’s relatively new too. This base is a light sock weight yarn, made from pure superwash merino, with a soft twist. It has 492 yards (450m) per 100g. Unlike most of our sock yarns, this one is a 3ply, which gives it a plump soft appearance. It feels woolly, but very soft. If you haven’t tried it yet, I think you’ll love it!
