Folklore Fox on Choufunga Sock

Regular price £17.50

Colourway: Folklore Fox

This colourway was first introduced in my 2019 Scottish Myth & Folklore Advent Set as Day 9.

The wily fox can be found in folklore around the world and I’ve been keen add a fox colourway to my repertoire for some time.  In regards to this collection, I particularly like the tales such as ‘The Fox & the Wolf’ and ‘How the Wolf Lost His Tail’, both from Scottish Folk Tales, Lomond Books.  Both of which reminded me of various animal centred folklore tales I loved in my youth.

I also enjoyed the tale of ‘How Ian Direach got the Blue Falcon’, which I found on the internet, with its very helpful fox Gille Mairtean.

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.

Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed thorougly after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations seperatly the first time, in case any residual dye remains. The vibrance 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'!
