Heavensphere luxury sock yarn is exclusive to The Yarn Cafe and has been created especially for us. Each 100g skein has approximately 425 metres.
Heavensphere is available in its natural shade and in different colours as part of the Shades of Heavensphere series. This is a limited series of hand-dyed yarns produced by independent dyers on a monthly basis. Each shade has been produced for a maximum of 10 skeins.
"Pewter" is the third of the series and has been produced for us by The Wool Kitchen . We asked Helen to come up with a metallic colour and she has dyed up Pewter - a silver/pewter with a soft violet added.
The name "Heavensphere" is inspired by the beautifully soft texture of the yarn and the fact that the fleece originates in the Southern Hemisphere.

This pattern would be suitable for someone with knitting experience.
