Alp-aca Socks - Luxury DK Sock Yarn Box June 2022 - Pre-order
- Durance- £38.00 - 6 in Stock
- Tête de Couleau- £38.00 - 8 in Stock
This is very special sock box with the colourways designed and dyed by my son Ashley. He has done this to raise money for an amazing Scout Jamboree trip he is taking part in this summer. He will be spending 2 weeks in the French alps, experiencing the local culture as well as taking part in plenty of adventurous activities such as white water kayaking, climbing and hill walking. £5 from each box will be put towards the cost of this trip.
The blue and white colourway is called Durance after the river he will (hopefully) be kayaking on and the green and blue colourway is called Tête de Couleau after the nearest mountain overlooking the valley they are camping in.
I have designed an exclusive sock pattern for this box which is inspired by the mountains and has been professionally tech edited as well as test knitted. This pattern has 3 sizes and is written and charted. Printed pattern not shown in photographs.
This box contains a full skein of hand dyed Crush DK in your choice of the variegated colourways with a coordinating 20g semi solid mini skein. As well as this you'll get; an Alp-aca themed yarn cosy to keep your yarn clean and tidy while you work, a cute stitch marker, a super useful notebook and pencil and a few extra sweet treats.
Crush DK is a sock yarn with a tight twist and good yardage. Its perfect for socks but also fantastic for any other projects including shawls and other accessories as it's soft and strong.
