We know that they also are interested in yarns for knitting socks, as it is a popular search term in our website analytics. Also we had a strong response to our discussion of yarns suitable for socks in the Wovember 2014 blog post.
So here is a selection for your delectation! Most of the yarns here are 4-ply, and incorporate mohair or alpaca to improve durability. We have also included some Guernsey yarns as they are great for fine high definition textured designs and Aran for thicker welly-boot socks or toppers.
We hope you will find the selection of colour and style will suit a wide variety of projects, from bed socks to formal and smart socks to funky and durable socks. For two different pairs, one for walking socks and one for Welly Boots, why not download our free Jean’s Socks pattern? The Welly Boots use Aran yarns, which you can find in our Aran selection.
