New 2022 version of Black Dragon sock yarn from Opal - Fantasy Land.
Black Dragon features an interesting dye technique combining a constant black ply that alternates thick and thin with two other plies that are self striping, creating different depths and effects.
Each 100g ball has enough yarn for at least one pair of socks (even for larger feet) and possibly two pairs (for smaller feet).
This classic 4ply weight produces finer handmade socks, and the wool/polyamide blend gives warmth, elasticity and durability, as well as moisture wicking properties. And it’s machine washable too!
But sock yarn is not just for socks. The patterning on this yarn works well on small items, like other accessories and baby garments. And it’s great held together with other yarn, giving depth and variety to yarn blending.
Like many of the Opal shade ranges, this is a limited edition... once it’s gone it’s gone.
