new Regia 6ply sock wool in the shop!

Thicker than 4ply, you knit this sock wool on 3 - 4 mm needles.  It comes in whopping 150g balls.

Adventure Color is a fair isle self patterning yarn.

According to the pattern leaflet (free with a yarn purchase!) you can get a pair of child's socks with 50g, a ladies pair with 100g and a gents pair with 150g.

You could probably get some lovely ladies knee highs with 150g too...  or maybe matching child and adult socks, or three pairs of children's socks.  Or legwarmers...

It would look good as a hat too!

The balls are so big we've split them into two photos, there are 10 shades in total...

This is a limited edition sock yarn, once its gone its gone!

There is a lovely big poster in the shop which shows each shade knitted up, and a sample sock too.

Our current 6ply pattern leaflet uses a boomerang heel (or round heel) but if you prefer a heel flap we still have copies of the last Regia leaflet too!
