Glaciers are not pure white. Light stony greys on a snowy white base with black speckles.
The upcycled yarn is spun from the same high quality merino as standard platinum sock. It uses leftovers from the mill, saving perfectly good wool from being wasted, and is virtually identical to the regular version. It is equally soft but, rather than the extreme smoothness of the platinum base, it has a very slightly cosier texture. They are almost indistinguishable and I can only be sure which is which because I labelled them. The upcycled is, of course, better for the environment.
It is a superwash treated 4ply sock weight yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 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:
