This yarn is a one of a kind and was solar dyed on the Island of Alonissos, Greece. The yarn was dyed by layering the yarn into a container and adding the dyes at the same time. The yarn was then left in the hot summer sun for 2 weeks and the result was this truly unique and one of a kind sock blank, Night Waters.
How to knit from a sock blank
You can knit directly from this sock blank. Just untie the end attached to the label and unravel the blank as you knit!
Blocking your finished knit from a sock blank is highly recommended as this will remove any kinks in the yarn.
This blend has all the soft and breathable qualities of merino but with the added durability of nylon, maing it perfect for sock knitting, or projects that require that extra bit of robustness.
This merino yarn has been treated with a superwash which is a process used to flatten out the yarn scales, making them less prone to felting. This means that the yarn can be machine washed, although we do recommend handwashing your hand-knits if possible.
