Blogger Exclusive! West Yorkshire Spinners' Christmas 2018 Sock Yarn Revealed

It has become a tradition that each year West Yorkshire Spinners brings out a special one-off Christmas edition of its Signature 4ply sock yarn.

A Woolly Yarn can exclusively reveal this year's design, Fairy Lights:

WYS says that for this year's Christmas special "we wanted to create a unique print (a speciality of ours) and recreate the twinkle of fairy lights with a bright and cheerful feel".

The self-striping yarn has splashes of white, green, red and blue. Fairy Lights is a blend of 75% wool and 25% nylon. Each 100g ball should be enough to knit one pair of socks - unless you have very large feet! The great news is that when you buy Fairy Lights WYS throws in a free sock pattern.

A ball of Fairy Lights costs £7.20 from independent yarn shops. There's a stockists page on West Yorkshire Spinners' website to help you find one near you.

I'm going on a long-haul flight soon and will be using the time to cast on Fairy Lights. Hopefully I'll have a festive new pair of socks come Christmas Eve!
