Bluem Sock - Rusty Tractor

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.

About Rusty Tractor:

'Iris' International is our rusty old tractor, built in the mid-1970s and built to last. Her bodywork at one time a rich red, the patina of the years and the accumulation of rust has turned that red into a rich autumnal rust shade. Rusty Tractor pays homage to Iris our trusty farm vehicle, recreating the same rich but earthy tones.
