As its name suggests Opal Rainforest 18 is an inspiring collection of durable self-striping and flecked yarn, whose colourways reflect those associated with various 'rainforest' animals. With its blend of 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon this collection is particularly apt for sock knitting. From bright rainbow shades to darker tonal combinations, there's something here for everyone.
