A luxury gift box with a yarn set inspired by the Grand Canyon

What’s in the box

  • 8 × 20g British wool 4 ply mini-skeins dyed as a gradient set

  • A beautiful set of 5 handmade lampwork glass stitch markers
  • Two more thoughtfully sourced surprises we think you’ll love

Unlike previous years’ Festive Boxes, the contents are wrapped as a whole, rather than individually as daily parcels. We’ve made this change in order to keep the box as affordable as possible and minimise waste.

The yarn

For this set, we’ve chosen a smooth, round 4-ply/sock weight yarn in British Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) superwash wool. This fibre has a lustrous quality, which gives a real depth of colour and perfectly complements the hazy, muted shades in this set.

Bluefaced Leicester is a native British sheep breed. Its long staple length makes it hard-wearing and a great choice for socks. Being a superwash yarn, it’s easy to care for too.

Each 20g skein measures approximately 80m. The total amount of yarn is 160g/640m. We recommend a needle size of around 3.25mm for regular knitting, and 2.25mm for socks.

The shades

We have created a gradient set of 8 semi-solid shades, inspired by the enigmatic landscape of the Grand Canyon. The set is perfect for gradient or striped socks, gloves, fingerless mittens and other accessories. For example, Clouds Sock by Rebecca A. (free download from Ravelry) with contrasting stripes would be a fun way to use the set.
