China Blue is a vibrant bold blue with a soft edge to it. A beautiful strong colour.
China Blue - 4 ply sock yarn in merino & nylon
4 ply fingering weight. 100g - 400metres
Darjeeling sock yarn: 85% Australian merino, 15% nylon.
A soft smooth sock base that dyes up like a dream into anything I can dream up! A soft but firm sock base with good stitch definition.
It is recommended that you hand wash in cool to luke warm water with a wool wash to prevent dissociating. Slight bleeding may occur but should not effect the final colour. The merino is superwash but the dyes not. (However, I'm not hand washing my socks so there)!
The Forbidden Garden Collection is the second collection of colours based on my recent travels to China. There are 7 colours to the second collection : Dragonfruit, Ming Tile, China Doll, Matcha Green, China Blue, Wild Orchid and Lacquer Red.
