Opal and Viridian have collaborated to create this colourful range of ‘Schafpate’ 4 ply sock yarn. In German, Schafpate literally means “Sheep Godfather”, Viridian’s owner has named the yarn shades after his family members: Kim, Thelma, Sunny, Claire, Kate, Charlie, George and Princess.

Each ball features multicoloured blends knitting up to form beautiful (Fair Isle) type designs without any effort from the knitter! A brilliant yarn for socks, but would make fantastically unique garments for babies and children. 

For UK delivery, we use Royal Mail’s Tracked 24 and Tracked 48 services. Provided goods are in stock, every effort will be made to dispatch your order the next day during shop opening hours, 1-3 days when the shop is closed.

To give you the best results we always check the dye lot numbers match within each order.  If for any reason it is not possible to complete your order using only one dye lot we will contact you as soon as possible.
