Listing image #95201
This single-thread blank is (non-electrical) machine knitted from fluffy alpaca sock yarn. The hard-wearing yarn is a homegrown beauty from Dunedin’s Flagstaff Alpacas. It is composed from 60% alpaca, 20% fine merino, and 20% nylon for sockability.

I’ve painted the blank with stripes in muted colours. Each blank is knitted from 100g (app 360 metres) of yarn – enough for a medium-sized pair of socks. Knit directly from the blank, unravelling as you go.

Please note: Although I have used approximately the same number of stitches (60) as you would for a sock, the blank obviously is knitted back and forth in the flat. Your socks, however, will be knitted in the round, so they won’t look exactly like your painted blank - serendipity...

Knit with 2-3 mm needles. Hand wash in warm water and air dry flat away from the sun.

The "small" print:
My hand-dyed wools are non-repeatable runs, which means once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Please hand wash your wool with care. Wool labeled “superwash” you can cold machine wash. I take great care to achieve beautiful results that are lightfast and colourfast, but sometimes there is a tiny amount of colour running out of the wool at first, so wash your item separately.

I take commissions.

Please contact me if you live outside of New Zealand.

I will combine postage when possible.

When choosing colours please keep in mind that not all monitors show colours the same.

If you’re not satisfied with your wool you can return it to me in original condition, i. e. with label attached and at your own cost in exchange for different wool or a refund.

I’m a great believer in avoiding waste and recycling. That’s why I use recycled packaging materials wherever possible.

If you’re happy with your wool, please let me know and don’t forget to place feedback.
