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.

Inspired by the Star Trek TOS episode “Devil in the Dark” and the silicon based life form called the Horta. The kids imagined her eggs would hatch into tiny shaggy rug-like creatures and sound like teacup pigs, and so what surely must be my band name “Horta and the Pigrugs” came into being!

It is a superwash treated 4ply sock weight yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 25% nylon for strength and 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:
