A new batch will be available to order once the previous batch is dyed. Please check back, or look for updates on social media.
This is a pre-order listing for Watermelon self-striping yarn.
The yarn is a 75% superwash merino/25% nylon sock yarn, 425m/100g skein. This should be enough to knit a standard pair of adult socks.
You can choose to have your yarn in a (very long) skein, or wound into a cake. Please note that requesting a cake will add a little time on to your order. Skeins will not fit onto a standard swift, they are a 6m loop. Please see the pictures.
The socks pictured were knitted by Rebecca of Rebecca Milton Designs. They are a 60 stitch sock, using 2.5mm needles. Your stitch count and gauge will affect how the yarn stripes.
The pictures are a guide only, I dye in small batches and each dye lot may vary, as may each skein within a dye lot.
This pre-order will be open in small batches, to allow me time to dye without getting overwhelmed. The process for dyeing this colourway is more complicated than any of my others. Once dyed I will open another batch as demand allows. I expect each batch to take 2-3 weeks to process (roughly!).
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page.
I do my utmost to represent colours to the best of my ability in all of my listings, but please remember that different monitors may show colours differently.
I recommend hand washing your finished items in cold water, shaping, and laying flat to dry.
