A selection of sock yarn shades from West Yorkshire Spinners in Christmassy colours and some with added sparkle.
You can find the annual free patterns from WYS Festive socks here.
Each 100g ball has enough yarn for at least one pair of socks (even for larger feet) and possibly two pairs (for smaller feet).
This classic 4ply weight produces finer handmade socks, and the wool/nylon blend gives warmth, elasticity and durability, as well as moisture wicking properties. And it’s machine washable too!
But sock yarn is not just for socks. The patterning on sock yarn works well on small items, like other accessories and baby garments. And it’s great held together with other yarn, giving depth and variety to yarn blending.
