SALE - Retro - British BFL/nylon sock yarn
Love this


The combination of blue, purple, turquoise and emerald in this yarn somehow makes me think of

the 1970s and 80s. The colours in this yarn are perhaps a little darker that the photographs

would suggest. This yarn should make strong socks due to the nylon content. There are two

skeins available (price shown is for one). They could be used in the same project, but I

recommend alternating between the two skeins as the colours blend slightly differently in each.

This yarn is likely to form a repeating pattern (pooling) as it is worked up, but the result

will depend on gauge, pattern etc. Both skeins have been reskeined, as shown in the first two photographs. They are shown before reskeining in the third photograph, for reference only.

Colourway: Retro
Fibre: 75% British Bluefaced Leicester, 25% Nylon
Metreage: 100g/400m
Washing: handwashing in cool water recommended.

Please note this yarn is not superwash.
