Oh So Fine! 4-ply – Pen-Y-Fan – 400m/100g

(1 customer review)

£21.50

55% British Bluefaced Leicester wool/45% Silk
Approximately 400m per 100g

Oh-So-Fine Sock is a silky-soft sock/fingering weight yarn with excellent drape and a luxurious sheen. It’s very soft against the skin, and is wonderfully strong. It’s great for luxury socks, thanks to the hardwearing BFL and the strength of the silk.  Its softness and drape also makes it perfect for shawls and drapey tees.

This variegated colourway is inspired by the soft greens and greys of Pen-Y-Fan (pronounce pen-uh-van), as the clouds scud across the sky, casting shadows and revealing bright patches of sunlit grass.  This colourway has lots of variegation and is likely to pool and flash, creating pockets of brightness and darkness.

Oh-So-Fine Sock is a silky-soft sock/fingering weight yarn with excellent drape and a luxurious sheen. It’s very soft against the skin, and is wonderfully strong. It’s great for luxury socks, thanks to the hardwearing BFL and the strength of the silk.  Its softness and drape also makes it perfect for shawls and drapey tees.

The Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool is British in origin.  It’s a fantastic wool to work with – next to skin soft, strong and warm, with a delicate sheen that’s enhanced by the silk in this yarn.

This is a superwash yarn, so will not felt, but it’s still worth a little care. To make your creation last, I recommend hand-washing, or using the wool-wash setting on your washing machine, and drying flat.

    Bought this colourway to go with Sorceress, they are stunning together but I have fallen for this colourway so will be looking for a project for it to stand alone.
    The shine and softness is wonderful, a pleasure to knit with.
