    Yak Sock Yarns Hand Dyed by FelinFach

    Yarn Shop Online UK

    Within our hand dyed yarn Collection is our new range of Sock Yarn UK. This is spun in Yorkshire and hand dyed in small batches in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK. Yak yarn is currently available in 20gram Mini Skeins, 50gram Midi Skeins and 100gram skeins.

    All Yak yarn is hand dyed with natural dyes. This is one of my favourite yarns to dye, the rich blend of fibres provides a lovely base to dye, the results are deep beautiful colours with a heathered soft finish. The fabric has a lovley drape and is suitable for all sorts of acessories, sweaters and as there is added nylon great for socks.

    What is Sock Yarn or Wool in the UK

    Sock Yarn is also sometimes referred to as fingering weight yarn. Traditionally, yak yarn is a great choice for knitters looking for a luxurious yet practical yarn for creating warm, comfortable, and long-lasting socks but also for knitting baby clothes, hats, shawls, cowls, or other small projects.
