Opal sock yarns are treasured by knitters worldwide for their exciting multicolour printed and coloured effects. While you can knit socks with many different yarns, the best sock yarns contain 75% pure wool to make the sock stretchy and 25% polyamide to add durability. These yarns are also machine washable, a great advantage with this type of knitted garment. Opal’s self-striping wool sock yarns are space-dyed in lovely colour combinations to create unique striped and spotted patterns as you knit. Try their sock yarn containing Edelweiss and vitamin E - a treat for the hands as well as the feet!
