Four Two Two Four - Sock Snake - BFL Nylon

  • £32.00


Four Two Two Four was created for the 2018 Super Summer Knitogether retreat goody bag - it features layers of mint green, speckled with spearmint, rusted orange and a hint of warm brown. It's named for the 4224 miles between my house on the Sussex coast of England and the Scarritt Bennett Center, in Nashville TN, where the retreat is held.

Sock Snakes are machine knit tubes of sock yarn - the entire skein has been cranked, with no breaks. They are 72sts around and the diameter of the tube is approx. 10cm.

You can find my video tutorial on how to turn a sock snake into a pair of socks, right here:

BFL Nylon is a fingering weight blend of 80% Superwash BFL and 20% Nylon. It's a high twist yarn, designed to withstand wear. It's perfect for socks or longwearing garments.

365m / approx 400yds per 100g skein.

Superwash wool is machine washable - I recommend using a wool/delicates cycle, or a 30 degree wash and laying flat to dry. I recommend washing items separately or hand washing for the first few washes as minimal colour bleeding may occur.

A note about my yarn hand dyed yarn:

Unless otherwise noted, all my colourways are repeatable, however no two skeins are identical.

All yarn is from a smoke-free, cat friendly environment (although the cats are not allowed to play in the yarn!).
