This year has been a Painted Lady year. These occur about once a decade, with especially huge numbers sighted, the last one being in 2009. They are remarkable butterflies that continuously migrate, with successive generations heading south for warmer weather during our Winter and returning northwards the next year in Spring.
It's a superwash treated 4ply sock yarn that's soft and smooth with 75% bluefaced leicester wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for strength and 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:
