From the Queen of Socks, Rachel Coopey, comes this gorgeous range of delicately coloured yarns. It is a fine superwash merino with nylon which makes it a really fabulous sock yarn but it is also for perfect for light weight shawls and other accessories as it is soft and squeezable. The skeins are 50 grams which also makes it great for colour work and stripes as well.
Note that 1 sock will make 1 single adult sock not a pair.
As it is quite light weight, more a light fingering 3ply than a 4ply, it is definitely one to swatch before starting a pattern but it does knit well to Rachel’s own sock patterns (click here) using the recommended needle size.
