About Bluem Sock:
Bluem Sock is 75% British Bluefaced Leicester wool/25% nylon, spun at a local mill and hand-dyed by Susan here at Monkley Ghyll.
Bluem sock is a Fingering weight yarn, worsted spun with a high twist making it perfect for socks. The Bluefaced Leicester yarn is a soft but resilient fibre and combined with a small amount of nylon, it creates the perfect fabric for socks. The yarn shows off texture, cables and lace to great effect and the fibre combination takes colour beautifully.
All shades are limited edition and dyed by hand here at Monkley Ghyll in a range of shades inspired by the landscape on this hillside farm.
400 metres/437 yards per 100g.
Recommended gauge from 28-34 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.25-2.25mm needles.
Also available in 25gm mini-skeins.
About Herb Garden:
As both a cook and a grower, herbs have always been the first plants that I think of when planning a garden. Sage, rosemary, lavender and thyme live amongst the flowers just outside my farmhouse door. Bay, lemon balm and a range of mints join them and together they create a heady mix of aromas on balmy, summer evenings. Herb Garden picks up the tones of blueish greens that appear in so many of my favourite herbs, with a glorious mix of lighter and darker tones running through the skein.
