Winter – Corriedale 4ply Mini-Skein Set
A set of 6 winter themed mini-skeins of Corriedale 4ply. Each skein is 20g giving you 120g in total.
Corriedale 4ply is a soft and strong yarn, spun with extra twist to make it robust enough to be used as sock yarn. It has approximately 400m per 100g giving you approximately 80m per 20g mini-skein, or 480m for the 120g set.
The wool is sourced from the Falkland Islands and spun in Yorkshire.
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. This yarn will last well compared to other synthetic-free yarns, however, I have yet to find a synthetic-free, non-superwash yarn which can match the longevity of nylon blend equivalents. 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 for it to felt. Due to the dyeing process no two skeins are identical.
Please note that colours may vary on different monitors and devices so the shade may not be identical to what you see on your screen.
