Gorgeous rich self patterening colours in this Opal sock yarn ' Best of Opal' range. This yarn always leaves me wanting to knit just one more row to watch the pattern develop on my needles.
This is a NZ fingering weight yarn even though the label says 3ply.
Lovely soft yarn, yet very durable due to the 75% wool and 25% polyamide composition. Not only for socks but shawls, hats, mitts, jerseys. Use in a section of a shawl and marry it up with some contrasting solid shades for great visual effects.
100gms/425m per ball. Plenty for long adult socks.
Recommended needles 2.5mm
Machine washable. I like to dry mine on sock blockers and in the shade to ensure the colours do not fade.
