These beautiful 3-ply fingering weight yarns are perfect for socks, Sanquhar gloves, and other types of gloves as well. These yummy hanks of yarn were skillfully dyed by Sarah Lake, owner of Upton Yarns, a hand-dyer who uses plant dyes. There are also gorgeous natural colors of the sheep. Sadly (for us) she has moved away for a few years and will not be dyeing in the near future. I have several skeins of her yarns leftover which I had hoped to match up with other yarns from future orders. I have decided to let them all go. No sense in me hoarding them any longer!
All the yarn is 100% wool (NON- superwash). The skeins are three-ply fingering weight, perfect for gloves, socks and finer work. The hanks are approximately .88 oz (25 grams), 105 yarns (96 meters). The typical gauge is 9-13 sts/inch (2.5 cm). The suggested needle size is US 00 – 2 (1.75 – 2.75 mm). Please note that due to differences in color monitors, the colors may not be accurate as shown.
