Platinum Sock

(43 customer reviews)

£18.00

Platinum Sock Yarn is soft and very strong, made from 75% Superwash Merino and 25% nylon which gives it extra strength for heels and toes. It can also go in the washing machine and the dryer without worrying about it shrinking which is what you need from a pair of socks.

Please note that if these are showing as out of stock you can either join the waitlist or buy it dyed to order  minimum 2 skeins per order.

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 colour gradient yarns with speckles, semi-solid with speckles, and a variety of two-tone ombre yarns. This yarn is (as the name suggests) PERFECT for socks. I have made several pairs. You can buy them with the awesome pattern Simply The Simplest Sock by Michelle Gregory. Lots of these yarns are named after tracks by one of my all time hero's David Bowie, but there are a few exceptions as they are colourways that are also available on other yarns. However, there are a couple of all time classics including the latest addition "Strings of Life" one of my favourite 80's dance tunes!

I have disabled out of stock colourways, but I am always happy to dye bespoke colours. If you would like this yarn in any colour that you see on my website you can order it here and I will dye it for you at no extra cost. There is a minimum of 2 skeins per colourway. 

A few things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:

    1. No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. If consistency is important and/or to prevent colour pooling I strongly recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row, particularly on larger projects. If you are just using 1 skein you could knit from both ends.
    2. 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.
    3. It is not possible to work directly from a skein/hank. It must be wound into a ball before use, or will get into a terrible tangle. For more information on how to do this there are hundreds of  videos on YouTube. Alternatively for a small fee I can do it for you here.

    Just blocked my latest project made in Seasons in the sun as a present for my friend. The yarn is wonderful to knit with and the colours remind me of sugared almonds!

    This yarn is (like all of Abby’s yarns) absolutely gorgeous. I’ve used similar from an earlier order and, although I have not yet made up socks from this, the ones I made before have washed excellently and were a dream to knit. Life is indeed too short to knit with cheap yarn.

    The most beautiful yarn! It is now wound into balls but I haven’t started knitting yet – I want to be sure that I have the best pattern; I’ve whittled them down to three but the choice is becoming more difficult. I will decide soon!
