Description Patterns

Britsock is a fantastic yarn which has been custom spun in the UK by John Arbon.

Britsock contains 40% British Falkland Polwarth, 20% British Wensleydale, 20% British Alpaca and 20% nylon. The Wensleydale and alpaca come from UK flocks. Even the nylon was sourced in the UK. The wools and alpaca were processed in the UK, and the yarn was spun in Devon.

Britsock has been spun with a high twist to make it more hard wearing. This also means that the stitch definition is fantastic, so this yarn really lends itself to texture and cables which will show up beautifully. With 400 meters to each 100 gram skein there's plenty of yarn for socks even for larger feet.

Britsock isn't just for socks though as it's a lovely soft yarn which I'd be happy to have next to my skin. The yarn has a fantastic bounce to it, making it ideal for hats, scarves and shawls - anything where you want warmth without weight.

Britsock isn't superwash treated, so we'd recommend handwashing to keep it looking it's best.
