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, with the exception of Lost For Words which is a Pink Floyd track and Ship of Fools which is by World Party. 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.
