Favourite Sock

High-twist ethical merino 4 ply

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 for us 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.
