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!

This is a grey and purple gradient, with dark grey one end, light grey in the middle and then purple at the other with the silver stellina giving it its sparkle! It was dyed on a sock blank and then wound into a cake so that you could more easily see the colour progression.

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 handpainting. 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.

If you choose standard shipping, your package will be sent by standard first class (UK) or standard airmail (overseas) and will only be insured up to a total of £20 (including postage). This is the amount that I will be able to refund you for your whole package if it gets lost in the mail. If your purchase comes to more than £20 I strongly recommend that you choose the option at the checkout to increase the postal insurance. There is an option to increase the insurance to £50. For any more than this, please get in touch and I will tell you how much extra it is.
