This Bluefaced Leicester wool yarn may look completely respectable at first glance. But if you look a little closer, you’ll see it has a subtle sparkle that catches the eye. Socks made from Glitterball Sock Yarn say, “Sure, you may think I’m just an average office worker, but that’s because you’re unaware of my secret identity as an enchanting lounge singer.”
It’s scoured, combed and spun in the Yorkshire countryside. Eco-conscious suppliers and the finest breed of sheep produce this yarn’s exceptionally soft and silky wool. Then they add a little disco flair with sparkly lurex, creating the kind of look that sheep dream of. And while this makes fabulous socks, if you want everyone to enjoy your sparkle, use this to upgrade a shawl to all glam.
