Solar Flare: Starry Sock

Solar Flare: Starry Sock

The Flower Power Fund is a fundraising campaign supporting Marie Curie UK, a wonderful charity which supports people living with a terminal illness.  The brainchild of @Sherlock_knits, a year long campaign of yarny loveliness brings a new colourway each month under the theme of '50 laps around the sun'.  June is the turn of ourselves, and this is 'Solar Flare'.


Taking the theme somewhat literally, Caroline went staight to the sun for inspiration, finding a marvelous photograph (photo credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech) taken showing x-ray flares from the surface of the sun.  This has led to not one, but two colourways (the other, 'A Different Lens', can be found in its own listing) this one being 'Solar Flare' a bold gold variagated yarn flecked with speckles of purple and bronze.


Available on our Starry Sock base, this beautifully soft yarn is made of 75% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon / 5% Lurex for a strong sparkle plied all the way through.  with 400m per 100g this plump fingering weight yarn is perfect fro socks or for any project of your choosing!
