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 standard, colours may vary between device screens.

Order processing times
Current lead times: I'm running at about 3-5 weeks for despatch from ordering at the moment, though I am working hard to reduce this as best I can! ❤️
Orders are being processed mostly chronologically, which means if you order now, yes your wait time is longer than usual, but you have your place in the neon rainbow queue 🤗 🌈
I expect to catch back up and be working to 'normal business times' in a few weeks.
Ready To Ship items will jump the queue a bit (unless you've also ordered something I need to dye alongside the RTS items), but please remember I am not Amazon and this doesn't mean next day despatch - it still takes time to pack them despite them being already dyed! I can only pack so many orders in a day, alongside everything else I have to do on a daily basis. Please understand I am doing my best, but I am just one person and I cannot work miracles. There is no magic spell to make me able to pack more than I'm able to in one day.
Let's all remember to be kind to the posties, they're trying their best all around the world 💖 Delays are to be expected due to Covid absences, and shouldn't be taken out on them, or on me.
Normal business: I will try to prepare your order for shipping within 1-2 weeks of ordering, most orders are shipped within a couple of weeks.
Please do note that I have chronic vestibular migraines which means my capabilities aren't the same from day to day.
I get things done within my daily capabilities, as I maintain healthy boundaries which means I don't push myself too far past what I can achieve on any given day as this can lead to larger vestibular flare ups.
I am just the one person working on What Mustard Made, and I do my best to work through what I can every day, always moving forwards.
So please do allow some flexibility in your shipping expectations ❤️ This will allow me to stress less, and this keeps me healthier! I will regularly communicate my order processing times, but if you're unsure what's happening with your order, please do email me.
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.
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.
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!!
