PRAIRIE CROCUS - Sock Weight Yarn - 2/6.5,
Mohair-Wool-Nylon, 120g Skeins, 

Hand-Dyed Skeins, 
Semi-Solid Colours.


A fantastic sock yarn!  This has all the beauty of mohair and wool, along with the added strength of nylon.  It has a slight halo and is likely to bloom a little after washing.  It will work into lovely garments, look good in lacy projects, and of course make divinely cozy comfy socks!

These skeins were spun using the fleeces from our angora goats (adults). Their fleeces were blended with fine wool ( Charollais cross Dorset) for added memory to help your garments keep their shape and with nylon to add strength.

Please note: As of January 2018, there has been a change in this yarn.  Due to us having begun working with a new mill Prairie Crocus  has changed weight.  This is now the yardage you can expect in this lovely yarn, however, if you have worked with Prairie Crocus before please be very sure to check your gauge!

More about our dyeing process

We carefully hand dyed (kettle dye)  some of our skeins in small batches using professional acid dyes.  They were rinsed (until the water runs clear) and washed using Kookaburra Delicate ( a delicate wool wash with unique blend of Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil) . 

The colours are rich, vibrant and will be long lasting.

To minimize our environmental impact during the whole dyeing process, ( and when season permits it of course), we use water collected in our rain barrel instead of our well's water. 

Each skein is unique (even dyed together). Some skeins have more or less of each of the colours and some may be slightly uneven coloring due to the kettle dyeing process. This makes them special, one of a kind.

When working on a project that needs multiple skeins, please, purchase enough yarn from the same batch to complete your project, as difference may occur between dye lots.  We also recommend alternating those skeins to ensure an even blend of colours. 

Care Instructions:

  • Hand wash gently your finished item separately or with similar coloured items in cold water with a wool wash of your choice . Don’t leave it in the water more than 10 minutes as this will encourage the dye to come out and bleed on your contrast colour.  Lay flat to dry.  
  • IMPORTANT: If using with other colours, hand wash beforehand, as this yarn MAY bleed slightly on the first few washes (though we take care to ensure no colours bleed on the final rinse). This is not abnormal and can be due to differences in water chemistry, the used detergent. Also, certain colours tend to bleed more than others.
