New Spring Sock Yarns 2021
We have received several shipments of new spring yarns, featuring all new qualities and colours of sock yarn. All these yarns are soft, durable, washable and great for socks, shawls or baby garments.
New fabulous colours in Lang Supersoxx. 100 grams 75% Wool 25% Nylon. A wonderful all season yarn.
A new yarn from Pro Lana, Alicante, is a perfect Spring/Summer sock yarn that includes stretch. They are 100 grams and made up of 41% Cotton, 39% Wool, 13% Polyamide, 7% Elite Stretch. Feels like a cotton but with the strength and durability of a traditional sock yarn.
Back in stock, the very popular Sock Twin from Estelle. Two identical 50 gram balls of 75% Wool 25% Nylon make a perfectly matching ombré pair of socks.
For those looking for a completely wool free sock yarn/4ply fingering, we have all new and returning favourite colours in Universal's Bamboo Pop Sock. So soft and comfortable to wear.
