4ply BRITSOCK - Shop


Britsock is a fantastic yarn which has been custom spun for us in the UK by John Arbon. We’ve designed it to be the perfect yarn for almost every project, combining strength and softness.

Britsock contains 40% British Blue Faced Leicester, 20% British Wensleydale, 20% British Alpaca and 20% nylon. The Wensleydale and alpaca come from UK flocks. Even the nylon was sourced in the UK. The wools and alpaca were processed in the UK, and the yarn was spun in Devon.

Britsock has been spun with a high twist to make it more hard wearing. This also means that the stitch definition is fantastic, so this yarn really lends itself to texture and cables which will show up beautifully. There are 400 meters in each 100 gram skein.Britsock isn't just for socks as it's a lovely soft yarn which is wonderful next to your skin. The yarn has a fantastic bounce to it, making it ideal for hats, scarves and shawls - anything where you want warmth without weight
