Opal Relief 2 is a unique gradient yarn which provides you with small relief patterns on the back of the label (In German!) What is a relief pattern? In this case, it is a little 3D shape that gets incorporated as you knit, adding lines, waves, shapes and spots to your project.
Purpose made with socks in mind, this 4-ply yarn, made from a 75% wool (superwash) and 25% polyamide blend, is both cosy and highly durable, as well as washable up to 40 degrees. With just one ball, create a complete pair of socks. Or get creative as Opal Relief 2 impels your next knitting or crochet project. Each ball of Opal Relief 2 yarn weighs 100 grams and has a length of 425 metres. Available in several variants.
You can watch some relief knitting techniques on Fischer Wolle you tube (Please note – though filmed slowly and close up, these instructional videos are in German.)
Of course, you can just knit them up like normal and still get a fabulous effect without any relief knitting!
