Welcome to Sheena's Socks 'n' Wool

Home of Opal & Other Sock Yarns

With Opal 4-ply pre-patterned yarn, you can knit socks without having to manage multiple colour strands or following a colour chart. From one 100g ball you can knit a pair of ladies socks with some left over, or a pair of ladies long socks, or a pair of men's socks. It is excellent for knitting children's jerseys, socks, mitts etc as it is fully machine washable.  The Opal sock yarn is 75% wool and 25% polyamide.  The Opal Cotton 19 is 38% wool, 32% polyamide and 30% cotton.  Recommended double-ended sock needle sizes:  2.25mm loose knitters, 2.5mm average and 2.75mm tight.
