100% Superwash Merino Sock Yarn

The base yarn for our Superwash Merino sock yarn is Louet Gems, a premium fingering weight yarn loved by sock knitters for its luxurious softness, tight twist, and beautiful sheen. One skein is enough for a pair of socks. Its ease of care makes it perfect for baby knits too!

This yarn is carefully hand-dyed using professional Lanaset/Sabraset dyes that have the highest washfast and lightfast ratings, steam set, and rinsed in woolwash to condition and protect the fiber.

Silver, Silk, and Superwash Merino Sock Yarn

We are incredibly excited about our elegant new fingering weight yarn in an unbelievable blend of superwash merino, silk, nylon, and real silver!

The pure silver fibers blended into this yarn give it a dewy dusting of subtle sparkle. Not only is this the dreamiest yarn for special yet durable socks, it is also perfect for shawls, lace, and eveningwear.

We're kettle-dyeing this yarn in a handful of elemental semi-solid colorways that enhance the sophisticated bling in this exceptional yarn.
