Beira on Choufunga Sock

Regular price £19.00

Colourway: Beira

This colourway was first introduced in my 2019 Scottish Myth & Folklore Advent Set as Day 22.

Beira is the mighty Queen of Winter and I first came across her in Wonder Tales From Scottish Myth and Legend by Donald A. Mackenzie, Forgotten Books. She is considered to be the mother of all gods and goddesses in Celtic mythology and she and her giant sons are responsible for many of the geological features found in Scotland including lakes, rivers and mountains. 

She is also known by other names such as the Cailleach Bheur and many of the stories and lore surrounding her can be found easily on the internet.


All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.

1 x 100g hank of Choufunga: Superwash Merino sock weight wool – 75% merino wool and 25% nylon for hand or machine knitting. Beautifully soft merino with nylon for a bit of extra stretch and strength.

Each 100g hank is about 465 yards / 425 meters.

Suitable for machine washing but hand washing is preferable. Dry flat.

While I have tried to capture the colours as best I can, please be aware colours may vary from those shown here.

Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colour saturation and placement may vary between different skeins of the same colourway. If you are using more than one to skein to complete your project I recommend alternating between the skeins for the best overall colour matching.

Want the skein wound up and ready to knit? Add on my caking service to your order.

Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed thoroughly after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations separately the first time, in case any residual dye remains. The vibrancy of your wool will not be affected in the rare event that there is any run off. I don't expect the dyes to run, but I make mention out of caution as I would hate for my wool to be the 'red sock'!
