Fancy a surprise? Let me pick a ball of sock yarn for you!

I'll select 100g of self patterning sock yarn (it might be one ball or 2 x 50g balls) from my extensive range of sock yarns. It could be Opal, Regia, Bergere de France or Scholler & Stahl and it's quite likely to be a rare or discontinued design. You can give me free rein or ask me to avoid the cotton and/or silk blends if you prefer. I'll include a free sock pattern and my handy sock tips so all you'll need is needles and a stitch marker or two to get started.

If you're an avid sock knitter you can subscribe and receive 100g of surprise sock yarn each month for 15% less than buying them individually. There will be the same free sock pattern and tips in your first delivery but after that I'll include a different pattern each month - it might not always be for socks but it will always use sock yarn. There will also be some little surprises included in your 3rd, 6th and 9th boxes. If you're still knitting away after 12 months then the discount goes up to 20% Of course, you can stop your subscription any time you like - for all the subscription details have a look at the FAQs below or visit the Subscription Info page

This self patterning yarn is designed for socks so is durable and washable, however it will also knit to a standard 4 ply pattern. One 100g ball is sufficient for a pair of adult sized socks. Included is a FREE sock knitting pattern which covers most kids/adult sizes (requires a set of 2.5mm double pointed needles and some stitch markers).

When used for socks the recommended tension/gauge is 30 stitches and 42 rows to 10cm/4inches on 2.5mm needles. The yarn can also be used for a 4 ply pattern with tension/gauge of 28 stitches and 36 rows on 3.25mm needles.

The 'standard' sock yarn blend is 75% superwash wool, 25% polyamide mix, which is hard wearing and machine washable. There are also a couple of other options:

Cotton rich blend - 41% cotton, 34% wool and 25% polyamide - where the cotton is wrapped around the wool, making for a very smooth pair of socks

Silk blend - 55% Wool, 25% polyamide and 20% Silk - a soft yarn but with similar washing instructions and durability to a standard sock blend

The sock yarns included in this lucky dip selection are all machine washable. Some also suggest on the label they are also suitable for tumble drying (my personal preference is to avoid the dryer if you can, your socks will thank you)

The images here so you some possibilities that might make it to your parcel, I can't possibly show you everything so don't rely on getting one of these! I make every effort to show you colours accurately however, there may be some variation in display on different monitors etc

All my yarn is stored in a smoke-free environment

What blends might I receive?

The 'standard' sock yarn is 75% superwash wool & 25% polyamide - the majority of the Lucky Dip yarns will be this blend

You can also opt to include the occasional balls of:

Cotton Blend: 41% cotton, 34% wool and 25% polyamide - where the cotton is wrapped around the wool, making for a very smooth pair of socks

Silk Blend: 55% Wool, 25% polyamide and 20% Silk - a soft yarn but with similar washing instructions and durability to a standard sock blend

When will my subscription order arrive?

I send out subscription parcels during the first week of each month. Your first parcel will arrive in the month following your initial order date

For example - place an order on the 31st March and the first delivery will be with you early April but place your order on 3rd April and it'll arrive during May

How much postage will I pay?

The postage on each subscription parcel will be £4, that's how much it costs me to send the parcel. You can add as much as you like to that parcel, just use the code 'ADDTOSOCK' when you check out throughout the month any orders

You can also have as many subscriptions as you like in that parcel - 2 balls every 2 months will be less postage than 1 ball each month!

Can I add other orders to my parcel each month?

Of course! I'm happy to combine any orders you place during the preceding month to the parcel so you save on postage. Just use the code 'ADDTOMYSOCK' when you check out

For example - any orders you place during March (and use the discount code) will be combined with your April delivery

Can I order other items with my first subscription order?

Yes - I'll send those straight away and your subscription will arrive early next month

Unless...

...you'd like to wait until the subscription is ready. If you'd like to do that, use the code 'HAPPYTOWAIT' on your first order. I'll know to pack the order all together and the website will take off one of the shipping charges for you

Can I return a ball if I don't like it?

If, once your parcel has arrived, you don't like the yarn I've picked for you you are welcome to return it, just let me know and I'll send you a postage label (you will be responsible for the cost of return postage unless the yarn is damaged or faulty).
