Schafpate is Opal's annual collection in support of sheep farming in Germany. You can read about it on their website.
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 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.
