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:
