Industrial Accident Donegal Sock, rainbow speckled yarn with neutral neps


An industrial accident has taken place. Fortunately no one was hurt when an explosion occurred in a paint factory(!)

If you smiled as you groaned then this may just be the perfect yarn for you.....

Splattered with speckles of every colour of the rainbow this sock yarn truly is spectacular! It also has pretty nubs and flecks that add visual and textural interest.

It is superwash treated sock yarn with 85% merino wool for softness and warmth and 15% rainbow Donegal neps. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 400 metres per 100g skein.

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