Sheepish Sock is not just for socks! This gorgeous Hand Dyed yarn is a squishable and sturdy fingering weight yarn.
Spun with a beautiful high twist, which makes it very round, durable, and a pleasure to work with.
Bluefaced Leicester is a lustrous English longwool. It makes a soft and strong yarn, and takes dye beautifully. Lustrous with beautiful drape, suitable for next-to-skin garments.
This yarn also contains 20% nylon for even more strength and longevity. This yarn is also machine-washable on a cool cycle (altough we always recommend hand washing hand dyed yarns to make your stuff last longer).
It might just be the ultimate sock yarn, but it is also well suited to sweaters, kids garments, shawls, mitts, hats and things for the home.

Hiya, my name is Jess and I love yarn! My Nana taught me to knit as a youngster in Oregon, and there was no stopping me after I learned the basics. Ginger Twist Studio opened its doors in June 2013, and it is the cutest wee shop! I’m very fortunate to have been able to take something I feel so passionate about, and turn it into a career. I love being surrounded by rainbows of natural fibres and working with my hands.
