Party Octopus Sock Blank, grey gray pink 75/25 merino nylon sock yarn with rainbow speckles

$25.20


Coconut Octopus with a party of bright sprinkles!! Sock blanks are machine knitted before dyeing and you unravel then as you knit your project to watch a new pattern emerge as you work. One sock blank is the same size as a 100g skein of yarn and will make a pair of socks.

The Coconut Octopus is a remarkable cephalopod: it uses tools and can walk on two tentacles! These clever little guys gather coconut shells, seashells or similar items they find on the sea floor to create shelters for themselves. If you haven't seen this behaviour yet, you need to search "coconut octopus" on YouTube!

It is superwash treated 4ply sock yarn with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth, 20% nylon for strength and durability and 5% silver stellina for a fun sparkle. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 400 metres per 100g sock blank.

This yarn is presented as a sock blank. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time. The listing for my caking service is here:
