New stock of Blank Canvas sock blanks due in soon - reserve yours now!

Blank Canvas sock blanks - new from Debbie Tomkies and DT Craft & Design

After selling out in a matter of minutes at the Association of Guilds of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers Summer School in Lincoln last month I am pleased to announce that I have new stocks of my Blank Canvas sock blanks arriving shortly.

What are Blank Canvas sock blanks?
Our exclusive Blank Canvas sock blanks are rectangles knitted with two strands of our 75% merino/25% nylon superwash undyed sock yarn. To use simply lay out your Blank Canvas sock blank and then dye it using your preferred dyeing technique. Once dyed unfasten the holding waste yarn and unravel your Blank Canvas sock blank to give you two identical balls of your own unique hand dyed yarn. The beauty of Blank Canvas sock blanks is that if you dye your Blank Canvas in stripes you create self-striping sock yarn and because your two balls of yarn are dyed identically your finished socks will be a matching pair!

Each Blank Canvas sock blank weighs 100g and there is enough yarn to knit a lovely pair of socks (or a hat/scarf/mitts/baby jacket etc etc!). Blank Canvas sock blanks are £8.50 each and are in limited supply so if you're interested please click here to email me and I'll place you on the list for when they come in. (Artisan discounts will also apply at the usual yarn/fibre rate for those of you on the artisans list).

Scroll down this web page to see some examples of hand dyed Blank Canvas sock blanks and the socks knitted from them. For further ideas ideas on painting and using blanks and click here to check out my blog Hue & Dye
