Sock weight yarn is the same size and often the same gauge as fingering weight. However, these yarns are spun with socks in mind. Typically sock yarn has more plies and is spun tighter than fingering-weight to help add durability. Sock yarns also tend to be machine washable wool blended with other strengthening fibres such as nylon or silk. Our sock yarns come in a variety of textures and colours, meaning you're bound to find a skein destined to keep your feet warm
