Sock Dorset Horn/Nylon BLEND
Price per 100g
Our own unique blend of Dorset Horn and Trilobal Nylon!
DORSET SOCK is a fusion of natural white British Dorset Horn wool and Trilobal Nylon (strong & stretchy!)
Bouncy, crimpy and hard-wearing, Dorset Horn is, in it's own right, a good fibre to use for socks and being resistant to wet felting means you can wash your socks in the machine! (gentle wash only though!). Adding the nylon to this fusion turns it into what we think is the perfect fibre to create a great sock yarn! Both components of Dorset Sock take the dye incredibly well producing bright, clear colours for jazzy and fun yarn!
- 100g - mittens, socks, hat
- 300g - cushion cover, shawl, long scarf
- 600g - baby blanket, cardigan, ladies sweater
Always buy enough fibre to finish your project in one go to avoid slight shade variations from batch to batch (this is in the nature of natural wool). If colour matching is important to you get a free sample first.
100g of fibre spins 100g of yarn the yardage of which depends on how finely you spin. The weight chart above is a helpful guide but will depend on the size and tension of the final garment.
If the fibre is suitable for felting you'll find that 100 grams will compress down to a grapefruit sized solid 3D shape (approximately). If you only need smaller amounts try our mini selection packs.
Core wool is a cost effective way to quickly build up 3D shapes before topping off. Another popular product is pre-felt which is ready for further needle felting, or wet felting, or to be used as a base for your project.
