Opal Frosty Ice 8ply

By Opal


Frosty Ice is Opal's 8ply sock yarn for 2023.

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

This 8ply (DK, worsted 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!

Looking for a thick DK sock pattern? Try these ones from Winwick Mum and Tin Can Knits.

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.
