The Plankton set is my very popular blue, green and pink Plankton colourway paired with a hot pink mini.
Each Finny Mini Sock yarn set includes a full 100g /400m skein as well as a 20g / 80m mini skein of a complimenting colour which is perfect for heels and toes .
I use a superwash Merino and nylon blend which is strong but still very soft and comfortable to wear.
I am a crocheter and knitter myself so I only use the best of the best when it comes to making hand dyed yarn. These yarns are hand dyed with professional grade acid dyes and then rinsed after the dyeing process. Please check the label for washing instructions when possible it is preferable to hand wash to keep the colour. Please be aware that there may be a small amount of dye bleeding out in the first wash (although this is unusual because I am very thorough with my rinsing). Drying in direct sunlight can also fade the colour over time, so where possible, please avoid.
Buying local and supporting emerging trade is very important to the ideals of The Mermaids Purse Yarns. My vegan friendly cotton is sourced from Three Bears Yarn. Not only are they an emerging British company, they have found a way to make cotton that doesn't split. My animal yarns are sourced from Rooster Yarns. They are a relatively new british company with a focus on sustainable luxury wools.
Please bear in mind that whilst every effort is made to make sure the photograph accurately reflects the yarn colour monitors do vary.
All Items come securely packaged in a waterproof envelope with a special gift and washing instructions.
