As with any indie yarn dyer, I have my favourite colourways that I either love dyeing, love knitting with, or perhaps both. Sometimes they change, but right now my absolute favourites are these five - Rise of the Jellyfish, Death Metal, Grunge, Breaking Waves and Inkytincture. (from left to right)

Now you can try out these classic Noodle Soup colourways 80 meters at a time. Why not use them for a pop of colour in a fairisle project? Or for snazzy heels, toes and cuffs on some socks? Whatever you want to do with them, you can be sure that they knit up just like the 100g skeins do.

These packs are available on three bases - Sparkle Sock, Soft Sock and (just to be slightly confusing!) Soft Sparkle. Blend details are below, but at a glance, Sparkle Sock is my regular sparkle base that may look a tiny bit garishly sparkly in the skein, but ends up being pleasantly sparkly (and definitely not too much) when made up into projects, whereas Soft Sparkle has a lovely light halo of stellina when in a skein, but I find the sparkle gets lost a little and is perhaps just a little *too* subtle - you be the judge! And of course, Soft Sock is just that. A very soft Merino/Nylon sock blend with no sparkle, but plenty of shine.


400m/437 yards per 100g pack.

All of my yarn is prepared and stored in a smoke and pet free environment.

Superwash wool can be machine washed on a delicates cycle at 30⁰c, but I would recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry. Do not machine wash non-superwash wool. I recommend hand washing in cool water with very little agitation and a gentle soap. Lay flat to dry.

I have done my best to accurately represent the true colour of the skeins with my pictures, but due to differences in screen settings, what you see may not be exactly the same shade as the pictures I’ve taken.

As with all hand dyed yarn, no two skeins will ever be identical. However, where possible I will send skeins from the same dye lot together. A little bit of colour run may happen in the first few washes, but this will be minimal.
