About our yarns - Ziggy Stardust

Posted by

Ziggy Stardust is one of our most popular yarns from the I Knit or Dye range. With over 260 projects shared on Ravelry

Ziggy Stardust is a sock weight yarn and is a blend of 75% Superwash Merino 20% Nylon and 5% Stellina

Stellina is the magical thread which runs through the yarn giving it its signature sparkle!

We have a whole range of colour ways including some David Bowie inspired shades and even a Zombie Apocalypse range (photo above is shade: Alexandria). It knits the most amazing socks and I've seen some fabulous shawls knitted in it too! If you've knitted a project with Ziggy Stardust we'd love to see it!! 

You can buy Ziggy Stardust here if you fancy adding some sparkle to your stash!
