You can never have enough sock yarn! Whether you knit socks or not, this is a yarn that should be a staple of your stash. You can knit socks, shawls and even garments. Sock yarn is another name for 4ply and so can be used in any pattern that calls for it.
Last week we took delivery of a gorgeous new sock yarn, Socks Yeah! by CoopKnits. I’ve long been a fan of Rachel’s sock designs and when I heard she was doing a yarn, I couldn’t resist getting some in for you all. There are 10 subtly marled colours named after the minerals the colours are inspired by.Socks Yeah comes in 50g skeins with a generous 212m per skein which means you’ll need 2 for an average pair of adult socks and is priced at £5.45. The small skein size means it is also perfect for colourwork or perhaps a stunning stripey shawl. All the colours go together perfectly so whatever combination you choose, it’s bound to look great.
I think my favourites are Ammolite and Sphene. I’ve always been a pink girl and who can resist a bit of sunshine yellow on a grey autumn day? Which are your favourites?
We also have both volumes of Rachel’s sock knitting book. These feature an array of cleverly constructed and beautifully designed socks all of which would look great in Socks Yeah. Plus during November we will have 15% off all books! This will make Volume 1 £12.75 (normally £15) and Volume 2 £15.30 (normally £18).
A book and a couple of skeins of yarn would make a great present for the knitter in your life. I know they’ll be on my Christmas wish list.
