Here comes the science, listen carefully ... or scroll on if you just want yarn! x Kitey


Carbon is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and the fourth most abundant element in the universe by mass after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. It is the second most abundant element in the human body by mass (about 18.5%) after oxygen.


Carbon's abundance, its unique diversity of organic compounds, and its unusual ability to form polymers at the temperatures commonly encountered on Earth enables this element to serve as a common element of all known life.


Currently on Corriedale Sock 80/20, this colourway is OOAK - although I have plans to replicate, so if you miss out on the initial batch, stay tuned!

Perfect 'sensible' counter balance colourway to complement a wilder choice; toes and heels anyone?


*There are plans afoot (sorry, not sorry!) to make this a repeated colourway, but due to the techniques used in the dye process, colours will vary slightly throughout the hanks and between batches. Alternate hanks from different dye batches when working up larger projects.
