Bluem Sock - Dock Seed

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.

100 metres per 25g.


Recommended gauge from 28-34 sts to 10cm (4in) using 3.25-2.25mm needles.


Also available in 25gm mini-skeins.

About Dock Seed:

An edible if unappealing plant, Dock, grows rampant in the fields of Monkley Ghyll. Fortunately sheep love the taste and tuck into the leaves of the Dock plant whenever they come across one. However as autumn approaches the flowers of the Dock turn to seed and turn a deep earthy red, and form an elegant silhouette standing high above the grass around it.
