The theme for 2021 sock box is "Around the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland In 365 days or 12 boxes. Great Britain is situated north-west of the European continent between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. It has a total land area of 244,100 square kilometres, of which nearly 99% is land and the remainder inland water. From north to south it is about 1,000 kilometres long. It will be fun to explore what makes the UK special and home to so many people. I hope you enjoy travelling around the UK in 2021.
The yarn is hand hand painted using environmentally friendly dyes , And is sourced from either the UK or South America.
The dye Process: We use non-toxic acid dyes .The dye process has very little waste , and all of the dyes are exhausted into yarns before any water is poured away. I use food grade citric acid as setting agent, and rinse with water, to maintain a low impact on the environment. i take care to provide colourfastness, but some bleeding may occur in the first wash.
Each box will contain a skein of hand dyed fingering weight yarn suitable for making socks and high quality gifts to match the theme. The boxes will be mailed by the middle of May to allow for gifts to be made by other crafters.
