Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock - A perfect blend of warmth and strength to make a hardwearing sock yarn that can stand up to your affection and abuse. This yarn knits up beautifully into fine-gauge sweaters, small shawls, as well as socks. Spun from 80% superwash and super soft merino and 20% nylon, this 3-ply yarn is so versatile — knit it firmly for hard wearing socks, knit it loosely for drapey shawls, or knit it doubled for a great worsted weight substitute.

This is one of our most favourite yarns. It is wonderful to knit and crochet with and comes in the most gorgeous colours. If you've admired Deb's green striped jumper (see the About Us page), then you'll love Tough Love Sock too!

The colour palette is the first thing that attracted me to Sweet Georgia - it is so vibrant! The yarn has a sheen to it that makes it entirely suitable for shawls as well as socks. Because the variegated skeins are so beautifully matched to the semi-solids you can create some great combos, contrasts, and fades. I knitted Andrea Mowry’s Baubles shawl with Tough Love Sock and the finished object is so drapey and squishy it is like wearing a giant hug. It is a plump fingering weight (4ply) and I used a 3.5mm for my shawl but it would be perfectly fine on a bigger needle for a more open fabric as well. I have seen sock samples made from this yarn and they are delightful. Soft and luxurious treats for your feet. If you were going to try a garment I would definitely alternate skeins to ensure the colours blend up well.
