Orders are shipping daily. Because of the global pandemic, delivery times are likely to be longer than usual and may be somewhat unpredictable. Although most items arrive remarkably promptly considering the circumstances, please do not contact me to ask where your order is until two weeks have elapsed (UK) or one month (international). Prior to that, please use the tracking information. I have made signed-for delivery compulsory on a temporary basis until postal services are managing better or folk become used to slightly longer waits. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

One of six species of boobies, the Blue Footed Booby is a subtropical marine bird known for its distinctively coloured legs and feet. An apt name for a comical bird! Males display their feet in an elaborate courtship ritual by lifting them up and down while strutting around and posing their wings to attract females. And it’s not even hot! I don’t mean to be overly critical, but the beaks and feathers and marine fragrance are all total turn offs for me(!)

This is a soft and smooth superwash treated sock (4ply/fingering) weight yarn spun from 75% cosy merino wool with 25% nylon for enhanced durability. Around 420 metres per 100g skein. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.

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:
