Torquay is made using the colour combination 210-720-655-680 and is available from 3 to 6 ply up to 3000m.
This yarn cake is made from 50% Cotton / 50% Acrylic.
For specific colour ways please use our option ‘Design Your Own Yarn Cake‘.
For specific ply and length please get in touch.
The yarn cakes are plied not twisted. We added some beads to the centre pull to prevent the yarn from splitting whilst you are working with it. If you want to start your project with the outside colour first, just simply change the beads to the outside end of the yarn cake.
The colour change is set at even rates and are secured with tiny slip knots, which will be small enough to not be noticed in your finished work.
The yarn weights and recommended hook sizes are as follows:
- 3ply ~ 250m/50g (rec. hook size 2.5-3mm) (Fingering/Lace/0)
- 4ply ~ 188m/50g (rec. hook size 3-3.5mm) (Sock/Superfine/1)
- 5ply ~ 150m/50g (rec. hook size 3.5mm) (Sport/Fine/2)
