This range of Opal sock yarn is produced in a collaboration with UK-based yarn wholesalers, Viridian who have sponsored some of these rare breed sheep from Germany.

Schafpate literally translated means “Sheep Godfather” and these sheep have been named after family members of Viridian’s owner.

The range reflect the most popular shades in Opal’s previous limited edition sock yarns. You need one ball for a pair of adult socks but don’t stop there – Opal yarns make fabulous baby clothes including this Domino Baby Jacket knitted in Thelma.
