The monthly sock box, contains 100g 75% super wash merino, 25% nylon 425m plus 2x20g/85m mini skeins.The mini skeins will be dyed to complement the main skein, by using the mini skeins for contrasting cuff, heels and toes, it should be possible to knit two pairs of socks from the main skein. There will also be a little treat in each box. This monthly club is ideal for anyone not wanting the extra gifts that are in other mystery boxes.
The yarn is hand painted using environmentally friendly dyes, sourced from either the Uk or South America.The dye process has very little waste, as all the dyes are exhausted into the yarns before any water is poured away.I use food grade citric acid a setting agent, rinse with water to maintain a low impact on the environment. I also take as much care as possible to provide colourfastness, but some bleeding may occur in the first wash.
All yarns are stored in a smoke and pet free environment in sealed moth proof boxes. the boxes will be mailed by the end of May.
