BIG Opal 4ply update!

not one, not two, but three brand new Opal 4ply ranges are in the shop!

Colors in Love



These are all 4ply.
100g balls (you only need 1 ball for a pair of socks)*
Safari and Colors in Love are the usual 75% wool, 25% nylon mix - warm and hard wearing and they hold their sock shape!
Sport is little bit different... the clue is in the name!  It is 60% wool, 25% polypropylene and 15% nylon.  Apparently the polypropylene gives better temperature and moisture control!  So good for all you active folk.

*As usual 1 ball makes 1 pair of socks, or 2 pairs of short socks, or 2 short cowls. You could make 2 hats, or at least 2 pairs of small hand warmers, or several small gift bags or 20 small bunting flags! 100g will also give you a decent length of scarf/shawl or a jumper for a baby. Ideas for your odd bits can be found here on Pinterest. Or how about mixing it up with our solid colour Socks Yeah 4ply.
