Pastel Bert Micro-striping Odd Sock Skeins // 50g 4ply

Regular price £10.00

***Dyed to order - please see the 'Order processing/delivery info' tab for details on my current lead times  ❤️ ***

 

Odd socks?! Who loves them as much as I do? 

I've created some micro-striping 50g skeins which are half pastel semi-solid, half my Bert colourway. Some saturated skeins are also available here.

Bert is a speckley delightful mess and explosion of neon colour 🌈 Blues, pinks, yellows, oranges, greens, bright colours, darker ones... it's all in there.

Any neon dyes I use are UV reactive.

Pick yourself two or more skeins from this collection, and create some 'matching' odd socks, or just get one at a time 😘 The choice is all yours. 

The worked up sock photo shows a Bert: Magical Mustard sock to reference the way this yarn will micro-stripe; I have not had the chance to work up any of these pastel variants yet.

In the pastel collection so far, there are the following variants:

  • Pastel Neon Pink
  • Pastel Neon Coral
  • Pastel Neon Yellow
  • Pastel Aqua Blue
  • Pastel Neon Green
  • Pastel Neon Lavender
  • Pastel Neon Purple


4ply BFL Superwash 50g, approx. 200m. Bluefaced Leicester is a lot stronger than Merino, and does not require nylon to make strong hardwearing socks* 🥳 It's also lovely and soft, especially after blocking, and has a lovely lustre to it. 

*I have been wearing my pair of Bert micro-stripe socks constantly, and the only hole I have endured is from catching my heel on a nail. I darned it, and they're holding up perfectly  🥳

 

Dyed with professional acid dyes and rinsed thoroughly. 

Shades between batches may vary. Please note that the photographs are representative of the yarns you will receive, and are not the actual yarns, as they are dyed to order for you. As standard, colours may vary between device screens.

Order processing times

Run up to Christmas: N.B. Please note I cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas for orders placed from now due to current order processing times (I'm running about 3-4 weeks for despatch from ordering at the moment) and due to upcoming time booked off (I'm away from 9th Dec to 16th Dec so no shipping or dyeing at all during that time until after I'm back) ❤️

Orders are being processed mostly chronologically (Ready To Ship orders will jump the queue, because of the logistics of being able to get them out the door sooner because they're already dyed, which leaves my order list less heavy on my shoulders 😘), which means if you order now, yes your wait time is long, but you have your place in the neon rainbow queue 🤗 🌈


Re postage in December - last posting before my holiday is 7th December, then post collections will not resume again until 24th December. Next collection after 24th December is 31st December, then collections go back to twice weekly thereafter in 2022.

 

Normal business: I will try to prepare your order for shipping within 5-10 business days of ordering, and most orders are indeed shipped within a couple of weeks; please do note that I live with chronic invisible illness which means my capabilities aren't the same from day to day. I have been relatively stable for the last couple of years, but during 2021 I have noticed an uptick in symptoms, which do impact on my dyeing capabilities.

This means I now get things done within my daily capabilities, without pushing myself as this can lead to larger flare ups. Please know that I am always trying to work in one way or another, and the orders are always processed and shipped to the best of my abilities, as quickly as I can manage it 🥰

So please do allow some flexibility in your shipping expectations ❤️ This will allow me to stress less about any flare ups I might have which slow me down while I'm working through orders, and this keeps me healthier as stress is one of my biggest triggers (it's just one big continuous feedback loop 😅).

I ship orders twice a week, all are sent tracked through Royal Mail.


Please check your junk folder for the shipping confirmation before getting in touch about an overdue order, as some email providers like to put me there.

 

Customs/VAT

Customers are responsible for all customs VAT/duties fees on receipt of Goods. 

None of my prices include VAT, so you may be charged VAT by your country's customs authorities before the parcel will be released to you, according to the goods value threshold in your country. I am not in control of this, and I do not control the admin fees you may incur on top of the VAT charges. Please take this into account when ordering.



Covid

Re Covid-19, I am currently shipping to anywhere Royal Mail has no issues with - please see this Royal Mail International Incidents Bulletin page for further details re me posting to your country. If a country says 'on suspension' beside it, please note I will keep hold of your order until the suspension has been lifted.

Please also note, the length of time your parcel is in transit may be longer than usual.

If you aren't accepting of potentially long transit times outside of my control, please do not place an order, as it isn't worth the stress for both of us ❤️ Many thanks!!
