Sock Yarn (with nylon)

These hand dyed yarns are fingering weight and contain nylon, a perfect blend of fibres for sock knitting. It is recommended that you buy all that you need for a project at the same time as variations between dye lots are more noticeable than with yarns dyed at the same time.

Based in the UK, Countess Ablaze is a one-woman small business focusing on intense colour and fun colour combinations

Every single yarn is dyed a minimum of twice to achieve high saturation and glossy results, using professional acid dyes. A variety of dyeing techniques are used such as kettle dyeing, low water immersion dyeing and hand painting. Sometimes a colourway uses a mixture of all three. All yarns and fibres are heat set to exhaustion in a small industrial steamer and left overnight to sit in their own juices and cool naturally before rinsing with water the next day. After lots of experimentation, I found that this slow process gave the results that I was looking for in my hand dyed yarns and fibres. Colours are saturated, bold and intense. You won't find wishy washy colours here. Yarns and fibres are dyed in small batches, usually between 10 and 20 skeins. I dye laceweight, sock yarn, fingering weight / 4ply, sportsweight, DK, worsted and aran yarn in a range of luxury fibres such as merino, silk and cashmere and British breed wool.
