Heavier than the 4 ply / fingering weight yarns often referred to as sock weight this is closer to a sport or thin double knitting. Perfect for warm, sturdy boot socks it would also work well for mittens, hats and sweaters.
Lightly processed with some lanolin and vegetable matter remaining, and a wonderful woolly scent. There are both natural and dyed heathered colours which are overdyed on naturally grey yarn. For adult size socks you will need two to three skeins. Handwash in cool water is recommended. Due to the spinning process there might be knots in the skeins.
Colours with an H before the number are dyed on naturally grey yarn and have a heathered appearance. Colours with just a number are dyed on white yarn and have a more solid appearance.
