About Favourite Sock

  • 100% Merino superwash wool (non-mulesed)
  • Farmed in Argentina, spun in Peru
  • 100g, 365 meters (400 yards)
  • 4 ply / fingering / sock weight
  • 2.25 – 3.25mm needle
  • Regular garments: 28 stitches over 10cm using 3.25mm needle. Socks: 32 stitches over 10cm (4 inches) using 2.5mm needle

Shade: Shinjuku – black, purple and turquoise with splashes of neon, inspired by the iconic neon signs of Kabukichō, Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Due to the complex nature of the dyeing process for this shade, each skein has its own personality. If you are planning a larger project and want an even look, we recommend alternating skeins every few rows.

Favourite Sock is super-soft, yet hard-wearing enough to be used for socks. It has beautiful stitch definition and unparalleled 'smooshiness'. It's the perfect signature yarn to showcase our full palette of dye effects.

Not just for socks, it's perfect for any 4 ply/fingering weight wool project, especially baby clothes, gloves and lightweight sweaters, and being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for too.

Our merino is farmed in Argentina and is guaranteed mulesing-free. Farmers are supported by the mill to raise their sheep under ethical farming practices. It is spun in Peru, where the fleece is first graded by highly-skilled workers to ensure consistent quality.

Caring for neons

Neon dyes are not as colour-fast as regular dyes. To keep them looking their best we recommend hand washing in cool water (although the yarn itself is machine washable).
