Fingering Weight Yarn
100 grams 463 Yards 4-Ply
75% Superwash Merino Wool 25% Nylon
Simply Sock is hands down our best all-around sock yarn. It has a sturdy twist and a good amount of nylon for strength. Simply Sock is a 4-ply yarn which helps it hold up to the wear of a sock. Best of all, it is still a comfortable yarn because of the soft Merino wool. With 463 yards you will be able to easily knit a pair of women's socks with just one skein. But, don't just think socks. Simply Sock is great for children's clothing, too. We've even made scarves, shawls, and sweaters from this versatile yarn.
Chroma is the term we use for our space-dyed yarn. We originally dyed this up for weavers because it can make a gradient-type warp. For other needle arts, your mileage may vary. The yarn may possibly create a candy cane type of striping when knit into socks depending on your gauge, or it may pool. Be open to the serendipity of the yarn.
Simply Sock can be gently machine washed and dried, but we recommend hand washing in warm water and laying flat to dry to ensure the best care for your project.
