“Straw Field” is a hand-dyed 100g skein of 4ply/fingering Falkland Corriedale high-twist yarn. This is a variegated yarn dyed in shades of yellow with small sections of olive green and salmon pink. Due to the dyeing process no two skeins are identical.
Photos 1 & 2 show the re-skeined yarn, photos 3 & 4 show what it looks like before reskeining.
This yarn is 100% Falkland Corriedale. It is spun in Yorkshire and dyed in Dorset. Each 100g skein is approximately 400m in length.
Although this yarn does not contain Nylon, it is suitable for socks because it is made from Corriedale which is a sturdy yet soft wool. It has been spun with a high twist to add extra strength to it. You can read more about this yarn base here. As well as working wonderfully for socks, this yarn is also suitable for all sorts of other projects.
The yarn has not been superwash treated so requires gentle hand washing unless you intend to create felt.
