Gorgeous 4ply suitable not only for socks but all sorts of projects that use 4ply yarn.
Zig Zag is a machine-washable blend of 75% wool, 25% nylon with 420m (approx) per 100g ball. Just one ball will make a pair of socks to fit most feet, or a hat or a pair of mitts or a scarf.... it would make a fabulously colourful tank top or could be used to create a mock Fair Isle section on a garment. Christmas and Humbug are striped, the others are all a jazzy pattern.
King Cole suggest 3.25mm needles although for socks we would recommend going down to 3mm or 2.75 for a closer fabric. Remember though everybody's tension is different so CHECK YOURS before getting too far into your project!
There is a free sock knitting pattern with every ball purchased - we will try to tailor it to the colour you've bought but that's not always possible. There is also a fabulous multi pattern you can buy which includes a hat, a scarf, socks and armwarmers.
