This listing is for a 100g skein of hand dyed sock/4ply/fingering weight yarn on my Sparkle Owl base. Sparkle Owl is a gorgeous blend of 75% merino, 20% nylon and 5% stellina. This makes a sturdy base for socks but with that gorgeous merino softness and a touch of something special with the sparkle!

Cadbury is a stunning yarn. It is mainly the distinctive royal purple which is recogniseable by all Cadbury chocolate addicts! but then it has a splash of chocolate brown. It reminds me of a bar of Cadbury's with the corner peeled off and the milk chocolate visible underneath! So when knitted up, it would be 80% the main colour and 20% the contrast colour. It's a very effective and stand out yarn, especially for shawls and socks.

My yarns are dyed with acid dyes and then rinsed after the dyeing process. However, please hand wash to preserve the colour and please be aware that there may be a small amount of dye bleeding out in the first wash (although this is unusual because I am very thorough with my rinsing). Drying in direct sunlight can also fade the colour over time, so where possible, please avoid.

Each skein is 100g and has 400m/437yards.

Please bear in mind that I dye skeins in small batches through kettle dyeing and hand painting. This leads to small variations even between skeins in the same dye lot so if you have a large project in mind, please contact me so that I can make sure you get skeins as closely matching as possible or I can custom dye a specific quantity up for you. Also please bear in mind that whilst every effort is made to ensure the photograph accurately reflects the yarn colour monitors do vary.
