Opal Fantastic Sky 6ply

By Opal


Fantastic Sky is Opal's 6ply sock yarn for 2022.

Each 150g ball has enough yarn for at least one pair of socks (even for larger feet) and possibly two pairs (for smaller feet).  

This 6ply (sportweight, light DK weight) yarn produces thicker 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.

I have a shop printed free basic sock pattern (kids to large adult) let me know if you'd like one added to your order.
