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.

Classic Neapolitan : vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. This yarn self stripes with two metres of each colour, giving you a few rows if you are making socks, before it changes. Have a look at all the pictures for a visual representation. The last photo shows me winding a six metre skein into a ball.

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 SIX METRE skein. To wind it into a ball you will need two chair backs set 2.5 metres apart and be able to move between them. If you try to ball or cake it using a regular swift you will make a terrible knotted mess. My husband or I will ball it for you if you wish. He has a PhD in protein crystallography and works in cancer research and I am a medical doctor but you can buy 20 minutes of our labour for £4.
