Knobbed Whelk - Urchin

Regular price $35.00

Tax included.

Sounds harmless in a comical way. But no. 

Knobbed Whelk is a pale shell grey, with speckles in electric pink, blue, black, gold, green and khaki. Some skeins have lots of speckle action, some have a bit less! Alternating is strongly recommended.

Urchin is smooth and plump – a softly spun three ply construction. The lurex is spun in as an extra ply, (different from the stellina yarns available). It’s great for garments and accessories. While it has nylon content, I'm not yet sure about its durability for socks. As soon as I have more information, I'll update here!

I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
