These odd little beauties are so called because the boy butterflies make a cracking noise as part of their territorial display. And if that doesn’t sound weird enough for you, know that this species actually named the Red Cracker despite being, erm, blue....
It's a superwash treated 4ply sock yarn that's snuggly and smooth. It's spun from 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for enhanced 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:
