80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 4oz blank, approx. 420yds.
If you've seen our hand-painted sock blanks and want in on the fun, try your hand at dyeing your own! Acid-based dyes work best.
Our sock blanks are made with a specially tightly spun version of our Specialty Sock. Each blank is knitted on our knitting machine, with 2 strands of yarn held double. Then is hand-painted in various colourways, but of course, these aren't painted yet. That's fun you get to have! Due to this method, each of these hand-painted blanks result in a perfectly matching pair of socks! Just undo the cast-off edge and either spin into balls or work straight from the blank.
Perfect for 2-at-a-time Socks or, if split into balls, one-at-a-time too! Up to size 14 men's.
Care instructions - Machine wash on Gentle cycle, tumble dry. Handwashed items will last longer.
