BRITSOCK is a British sock yarn which has been custom spun for us by John Arbon.
From 10th October 2015 the yarn content of Britsock will change. It will be made up of 40% British Falkland Polwarth, 20% British Wensleydale, 20% British Alpaca and 20% nylon (sourced in the UK).
Original Britsock was made up of 40% British Bluefaced Leicester, 20% British Wensleydale, 20% British Alpaca and 20% nylon (and that was sourced in the UK too)
The yarn has been spun with a high twist to make it harder wearing and to provide outstanding stitch definition.
BRITSOCK is available in semi solid, multicoloured, take five and self striping colour ways and is the base yarn for our colour wheels.
