West Yorkshire Spinners' Christmas Sock Yarn 2019 Revealed

Just like putting the tree up and leaving mince pies out for Santa there's a relatively new festive tradition in town: knitting a pair of socks in this year's West Yorkshire Spinners' Christmas sock yarn.

The yarn has brown, red, white, grey and yellow/orange speckles reminiscent of its festive bird namesake.

Once again sock knitting pattern designer Winwick Mum has collaborated with WYS to publish a pattern especially for the yarn. The pattern comes free with every yarn purchase and is in the form of a Christmas card:

Each 100g ball costs £7.50 and should be available from your local yarn store. If yours doesn't stock it then you can order directly from WYS.
