The brand new hand dyed yarn cakes are here! These are one continuous length of yarn - no knots in sight!

These were previously knitted sock blanks, so their texture is slightly wiggly, but that just adds to the fun! There are three colourways available: Madeira Cake, Rainbow Cake and Angel Cake. There is a neon, a pastel and a neutral to cover all bases.

These cakes work perfectly for shawls, hats, socks, you name it. All have a beautiful gradient with at least four colours.

The yarn composition is as follows:

Sock/4ply - 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon, 100g, 425m
Tension: 28 sts x 36 rows, in 10cm (4in), over st st using 3.25mm needles

Each are 100g and obviously come ready-wound.
