I chose a beautiful Scottish thistle to inspire me for this Loch Ness Knit Fest exclusive colourway. I dyed the yarn base a light bluish purple and added speckles of darker purple and mixed forest colours on top for an effect that is both very pretty from a distance and wonderfully complex viewed close up.
It's a superwash treated 4ply sock yarn that's soft and smooth with 75% bluefaced leicester wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for strength and durability. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 420 metres per 100g skein.
This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
