Our Hoo | Sock base in mini skein form! The miniHoo bundles contain 5 mini skeins, each with 85 metres of merino/nylon yarn - a total of 425m and equivalent to 100g. Hoo has a lovely sheen, great drape and takes dye wonderfully and we dye these 'freestyle' taking inspiration from all around us to come up with ever changing selections that are great for pairing with semi-solids or using on their own. Indulge your love of fades, speckles and whimsy...

Although Hoo is a superwash fibre, we recommend hand washing in cool water to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.

As with all small batch, hand dyed yarn that doesn't have dye lots, we also recommend knitting alternate rows from two skeins when working on larger projects to avoid noticeable changes between skeins.

We use professional non-hazardous, non-chrome, low impact, heavy metal-free acid dyes. We do our best to exhaust every dye bath and to reuse water wherever possible to reduce any further environmental impact. Occasionally a small amount of 'loose' dye may remain in the yarn after rinsing (most likely with deeply saturated shades) and we always recommend hand washing in very cool water and pre-washing your yarn separately if you are intending to mix light and dark shades in a single garment/project.
