Stone Spindle Farm
Grey Sock Yarn
This is our own blend of alpaca and Lincoln Longwool from our friends at St. Isidore Farm
Our alpaca lends the softness and the properties of the rare breed Lincoln Longwool sheep contributes the durability. Add in a small touch of Dorset to help loft and we have a natural, locally sourced sock yarn.
Lincoln Longwool sheep are critically endangered and by choosing to use this fleece from a local organic farm we are doing our part to promote livestock diversity and keeping our sock yarn all natural.
70% Alpaca, 21% Lincoln Longwool, 9% Dorset
Each skein is approximately 125 grams and 376 metres (408 yards)
We knit our socks on 2.5 mm needles
