ColourLab DK Sock



WYS ColourLab DK as a sock yarn!

From West Yorkshire Spinners, a DK yarn with a classic sock blend of 75% wool and 25% nylon.

Each mega 150g ball is enough for a pair of thick socks. The British wool and nylon blend gives warmth, elasticity and durability, as well as moisture wicking properties. And it’s machine washable too.

Looking for a thick DK sock pattern? There's a link to a beginners sock pattern on the ball band or try these ones from Winwick Mum and Tin Can Knits.

But sock yarn is not just for socks. Try it on garments and accessories. These self patterning shades are lots of fun for a child’s first project.

West Yorkshire Spinners (WYS) is one of the few yarn brands in the UK still designing and manufacturing yarn in-house. Most of their fleeces come from suppliers in Bradford and they are processed at their factory in Keighley. Indeed, the whole operation takes place within a 40 mile area, including an on-site dye house.
