Tortoiseshell Sock Blank, cat inspired merino nylon indie yarn


Inspired by the colours of tortoiseshell cats, each sock blank is splattered and speckled with black/brown and orange on an ecru base. The dye is allowed to spread and merge and split organically so each skein is unique, just like each Tortie!

This is s single stranded sock blank that you unravel as you knit your own project.

This is a delightfully smooth superwash yarn spun from 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for enhanced durability. Approximately 420 metres per 100g sock blank. Suitable for 2-3mm needles.

All UK orders go first class within 24 hours and usually arrive within two to three working days. You can upgrade to guaranteed next day delivery if you wish. Claims of non receipt may be made on the 15th day after dispatch and not before. However, I obtain tracking information for some domestic orders so please ask if your order is delayed as I should be able to help you find it.

Overseas orders are sent via airmail and take two to six weeks. Please allow extra time during the run up to Christmas! You can upgrade to international tracked and signed (from five days) for only the actual cost of that service. Claims of non receipt for standard airmail should not be made until 25 working days after postage, until that time an order is considered delayed only.
