Opal Sock Yarn Has Arrived

Opal Sock Yarns
The sock yarn with a built in design!
We have added three new Opal sock yarns to our collection (Zirkus, Uni-Color, Rendez-vous). For those who have never worked with Opal, you are missing out.

Opal is a high quality German sock yarn that has the color actually printed on the running yarn just before it is wound into balls. This printing method allows greater flexibility in the choice of color and design.
This yarn is great for socks, hats, scarves, baby sweaters and even a poncho. You can get free patterns using Opal on www.ptyarn.com/freepatterns.html.
