Just perfect for socks, pretty shawls, lightweight garments and we even use baby Alpaca for blankets as it’s just so soft & cosy!
We have a wide selection of yarns that are suitable for socks. if you are looking to make socks the best yarns are those with Nylon or a long staple length fibre such as Blue Faced Leicester socks need a little something extra to make them super durable.
Most of our 4ply is sold in 2 x 50g Hanks, this is because we hand-paint most of our yarns and we think by starting a sock with two balls at exactly the same time gives you the best chance of making a perfect pair.
We recommend: 23 stitches and 30 rows for a 10x10cm tension square using 2.5mm - 3.5mm needles/hook

We always recommend that you buy all you need for a project at the same time. Whilst we follow recipes for each of our colour-ways the nature of Hand-Dyed means variations between Dye lots are much more noticeable than when yarns are all dyed at the same time.
