British Sock 4 Ply Yarn


This yarn is made with 100% British Wool (reared, sheared and spun in the UK) blended with high quality nylon. At least 35% of the wool content is guaranteed to be British BFL.

It has a standard construction of 4/16nm with 400m (437 yds) per 100g. Made with 75% Superwashed British wool and 25% Nylon, the wool fibres have been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore will not ‘felt’ when dyed or washed. The wool is combined with a smaller percentage of nylon which gives the knitted fabric extra durability and strength.

The yarn takes the dye well and is perfect for socks or any other project that requires a machine washable, easy care 4 ply yarn.
