Welcome to Skein Sisters Fabulous Sock! After years of dreaming, it's the very first yarn being launched under the Skein Sisters brand and we couldn't be more excited. Everyone deserves fabulous yarn is our tagline so it made absolute sense that our first yarn range is totally fabulous!
Fabulous Sock is a blend of 80% Australian extra fine superwash merino and 20% nylon. It's a plump and squishy sock yarn that is beautiful to use with a soft and smooth handle that glides through your hands. The Australian wool is 19.5 microns, which gives it the title of ‘extra fine merino’. It's soft enough to wear against your skin but not so soft that it's going to pill terribly.
With added nylon, Fabulous Sock is the best of all worlds. It's tough enough to make socks but it's also perfect for any other pattern that requires 4ply / sock or fingering weight yarn. Knitting, crochet and weaving, shawls, cardigans, jumpers, sweaters, scarves and accessories... you name it, it's perfect for them all.
Fabulous Sock is available in a range of more than 60 hand-dyed colours. Being a superwashed yarn, it takes the dye beautifully and we can dye colours from the palest whites to moody darks, and intense brights and fluoros, in solid, semi-solid and speckled colourways.
We take all care and quality control to ensure that our dyelots are as similar as possible, but remember that this is a hand-dyed yarn. We recommend alternating skeins when working with it.
Techy yarn details! The yarn has an S-twist and is constructed of four plies, which gives it strength, durability and density. It creates a rounded yarn, giving great structure to cables, lace, textured stitches and is beautifully even and smooth in stocking stitch. There is less likelihood of producing a biased fabric, where it twists to one side.
Although we do recommend that you handwash your woollen handknits, you can also wash Fabulous Sock in the washing machine on a gentle wool cycle without the worry of it felting.
