Platinum Sock Yarn is perfect yarn for socks. It’s soft and very strong, made from 75% Superwash Merino and 25% nylon which gives it extra strength for heels and toes. I have dyed this yarn in a several ways – as a gradient yarns with speckles, semi-solid with speckles, and a variety of two-tone ombre yarns (see image of knitted sock to see how these yarns will knit up).
This yarn is also available as a sock kit with special 25cm circular sock needles or a set of 5dpn’s, and the Simply The Simplest Sock pattern.
Most of these yarns are named after tracks by one of my all time hero’s David Bowie, but there are a few exceptions… As with all my colourways, they are dyed in small batches but I can create larger quantities on request.
A couple of things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. I recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row for consistency on larger projects.
- Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal – think jeans…) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate.
