Socks - in our opinion the bolder, the brighter, the better! This is THE berriest berry that ever berried as far as we’re concerned, berry purple with a magenta tone, rich and deep. This is a semi-solid.
This is on one of our favourite sock bases BFL/Nylon - soft, strong, very little pilling & wears in quickly without wearing out. An excellent workhorse sock yarn that we keep coming back to, sock after sock.
The Merino/Nylon is a slightly softer, fuller version of the BFL base, just as luxurious and hard wearing.
This is a high twist yarn.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
