Opal Sock Yarn
With Opal pre-patterned yarn, you can knit to your heart's content without having to worry about managing multiple colour strands or following a complex colour chart. Opal's colour changes are complex and subtle, making it a joy to watch the patterns unfold.
4-ply yarn specifications:
75% wool and 25% polyamide for extra wearability
Machine wash and dry; Non-felting; Allergy tested
100 gram balls - 425 metres
Recommended needle size 2.5mm.
Tension: 28 stitches / 36 rows to a 10 cm x 10 cm swatch
1 x 100 gram ball will make one pair of socks
Note on 3-ply Opal yarns: The majority of Opal yarn is 4-ply, but occasionally they issue a 3-ply collection. All our yarns are 4-ply unless indicated in the colour name.
3-ply yarn specifications:
The 3-ply balls are 75 grams, but have the same wool/polyamide composition and meterage as the 4-ply collections, and you can use the same patterns.
Note: Opal yarn is a product of Germany.
