Life in the Long Grass
Hand dyed in West Cork, Ireland, we may be a little biased here in at TLYC but we think these are the loveliest variegated and semi-solid sock yarns available!
This fine sock yarn is a merino nylon blend which is perfect for socks but also, as it's it is smooth to the touch it is suitable for all kinds of light weight garments and shawls.
The great range of colours, as well as being machine washable (although we recommend hand wash always!) also means it makes the cutest baby garments.
Please note that great care is taken to photograph the colours accurately but colours may vary from monitor to monitor.
Update July 2019: We are down to our last few skeins of Life in the Long Grass. Our next dyeslot with Life in the Long Grass is in September 2019, with yarns arriving in October 2019.
We have stocked Life In the Long Grass from the start but Summer 2017 is the first time we have stocked their 100% merino 4ply singles and we just don't know what took us so long! There are a lot of glorious hand dyed merino singles out there at the moment but these are just to die for!
This 4 ply yarn is 100% merino which is perfect for light weight garments that aren't going to be hard worn and shawls although they are also just perfect for keeping in their skeins as they are just so beautiful.
