Sheila's Gold Zebra Sock yarn, is a triumph of plying. Combining subtle combinations of "zebra" or barber pole striping makes an unusual choice for socks, garments and many other textile applications. Comes undyed but can be coloured to suit. Use a dye suitable for woollen fibres like Ashford Wool Dyes.

Care: Superwash means gentle machine wash or we prefer handwash with a delicate wash solution like Eucalan.
The superwash Merino comes from Argentina and Uruguay and is sourced from many farms of varying sizes, from smaller to larger farms, again often the fleeces are collected together from small farmers and then processed on a larger scale. from anti-mulesing sources. The nylon is added to this blend to provide strength to the soft merino fibres.
