Sock blanks are fabulous

  • Merino/Nylon blend (75/25) - just like my Gaia base
  • Perfect for knitting socks or shawls
  • One of a kind colourway

This sock blank was hand painted in a blue-violet gradient and then was sprinkled with pinks and turquoise. Finally, I added a handmade stencil throughout. The end result is a sock blank that is truly one of a kind.

Sock blanks are made of yarn that’s been commercially machine knitted into a long rectangle. They are then dyed in various ways, often stencilled.

You use these by unravelling one end and knitting your project. Because what you are creating has a different shape than the original sock blank, you’ll end up with a completely different colour pattern that will never be reproduced anywhere else, ever.

If you’ve never tried one of these, you definitely should. They’re a lot of fun, you see one thing unravelling and another coming to life! It’s very addictive.

Please note: due to my camera settings, this sock blank is slightly more violet in real life than it appears in the photo. I have done my best to reflect the true nature of the colours but a slight discrepancy does show on my side, which means your monitor settings might do the same.
