The Yarn

Favourite Sock and Favourite Sock Minis are 100% Merino superwash wool in a 4 ply/fingering weight, with 365m per 100g. It is our soft and versatile signature yarn. Fuzzy Lace is a luxurious blend of 74% Peruvian Baby Suri Alpaca and 26% Mulberry Silk with 60m per 10g mini-skein, bringing a beautifully delicate textural int to the set.

The Shades

The set will be created with the pattern in mind, but there is plenty of yarn to play with and could be used for many different projects. The shades will be a mix of semi-solids and lightly variegated colourways with some neons, inspired by the colours of the Northern Lights. The two full-size skeins of Favourite Sock will both be dyed in the same dark colourway (suitable for the main colour of the pattern) with the mini-skeins providing contrast.

The Pattern

Pomp and Poms is an enjoyable and approachable knit designed by our good friend Therése Hedlund aka Brixton Purl. It makes a fun, sizeable shawl you will reach for to brighten up chilly days. A 4mm (US 6) circular needle at least 60cm/24 inches long is recommended (not included).
