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.

Monkley Ghyll Wood edges our farm, its tall deciduous trees forming an ever changing back drop to life on the farm. Canopy is so called as it reflects the rich green foliage of these trees when their leaves are heavy on the branches. The hues are varied and intense with subtle hints of sunlight as the light touches the upper most branches.
