Marble Yarn Kit

MARBLE YARN KITS USING OUR BEAUTIFUL HAND-DYED BLUEM SOCK YARN NOW AVAILABLE. Please note, this kit does not include the Marble pattern. The pattern is only available by purchasing A Stitch in Time volume 3 which you can do by clicking on the link above.
Marble is a unique sweater design from A Stitch In Time Volume 3 with a simple, classic shape with a dramatic striped patterning with a 'marble' motif. Originally published in the 1950s, we have created a colourway which replicates the striking colours used in this eye-catching sweater. You can now purchase our hand-dyed yarn kit to create your own Marble using BLUEM SOCK, a beautifully soft fingering weight yarn, spun from 75% Bluefaced Leicester wool plus 25% nylon for added strength, smoothness and longevity.

The Marble kit includes five glorious colours - Buttermilk - the natural undyed colour of Bluem Sock, Loam - a deep brown, plus three newly created shades - Legbar - a delicious turquoise; Red Granite - a gorgeous coral-pink and Daffodil - a clear, lemon yellow. Our yarns are hand dyed in-house by Susan and her team, who spend many hours perfecting the colour palette for our vintage patterns. These specially created shades are only currently available as part of the Marble yarn kit.

Bluem Sock is available in 100g skeins each containing 395m / 432 yds. If you wish to change any of the colours in your kit, just let us know by email quoting your order number or pop a note in the comments box when placing your order. Want to make up your own kit?
