Kelpie on Twisty Face Sock

Regular price £17.50

Colourway: Kelpie

A red-eyed black mare dripping with sea water and weed. This shape shifting spirit has been known to lure the curious to a watery grave. One touch to its sticky skin and you can never be freed. However, it is said the water horse could be caught by the crafty to work the fields tirelessly. Do you dare try?

This colourway is also available as part of my Scottish Myths and Legends Mini Skein Pack.

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 Twisty Face: 100% superwash blue faced leicester sock weight wool. This yarn has a high twist that takes up the dye beautifully and gives a great stitch definition.

Each 100g hank is about 399 yards / 368 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'!
