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 hanks are 50 grams which also makes it great for Fair Isle, colour work and stripes as well.
Please Note that 1 hank will usually make 1 single adult sock, not a pair. Also, larger and/or wider feet or longer socks, may take more yardage.
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 pattern books (click here) using the recommended needle size.
