The yarn is 4ply weight, 75% pure British Alpaca and 25% nylon, and available in a range of colours, including two hand-dyed options. The hand-dyed options are slightly more expensive to reflect the work involved..

This sock comes in 10 sizes:

Adult [5-6, 6.5-8.5, 9-9.5, 10-11, 11.5-13]

  • 100g (400m)  Gorgeous DK yarn made from 75% alpaca/25% sheep's wool
  • Pattern for these socks
  • Optional 2.5mm double pointed needles

As with all Gorgeous alpaca DK kits, the socks will be warm and cosy, but lightweight and breathes well. The alpaca yarn has a small amount of sock nylon blended in, which makes it easy to knit with, and still retains that wonderful alpaca softness.

The socks can be washed by hand or in a machine on a wool wash at 20 degrees.

Wonderful soft yarn in lovely colours, not started knitting this kit as I need to finish another project first but I’m getting itchy fingers to start it.
Lovely clear instructions and having its own bag to carry it round in is a bonus.

Lovely soft yarn

Lovely soft yarn in gorgeous colours. I bought 3 kits and so far only one made up. The pattern was easy to follow and the finished fingerless turned out well. Only 2 hats to knit now and I'm looking forward to getting started. The kits arrived quickly each in a little cotton bag, I was delighted with this little touch. I'll definitely be buying more.
