Polwarth Superwash Wool Sock Yarn 4 ply Sock / Fingering Weight Hand Dyed

£15.75

Hand – dyed sock yarn / heavy fingering 100% Polwarth Superwash wool sock yarn. 4 ply, 16 wpi knitting yarn for socks and other accessories where a superwash wool yarn is desirable. Hand dyed in my home studio by sprinkling and painting.

Perfect for socks, shawls and other accessories.

100% Superwash Polwarth wool is an excellent sock yarn base because it’s soft but hardwearing due to its construction. It takes dye really well resulting in crisp bright colours.
100g (400m/437 yards) is enough for a generous pair of adult socks, mittens, small cowl or a small shawl.

Our Polwarth comes from flocks raised on the British Falkland Islands where organic farming methods are used. It has been processed and spun in the UK and hand-dyed in our Cornwall studio.

It is also machine washable on a wool cycle.

Polwarth were first bred in Australian in the 1880’s from one quarter Leicester longwool and three quarters merino. The wool has good bulkiness and a soft handle, ideal for projects where strength is required.
