Favourite Sock Minis

High-twist merino 4 ply yarn in 20g mini skeins

Favourite Sock is the perfect signature yarn to showcase our full palette of dye effects, and now it's available in 20g mini-skeins in our most popular hand-dyed colours and an exclusive range of neons.

There are so many ways to use sock minis: Add contrast edging to cuffs, brims and collars; create a fade; use in a stranded design; stripes; modular blankets; or just sample a colour without committing to a full skein.

This beautiful yarn has great stitch definition and unparalleled 'smooshiness'. It is super-soft, yet hard-wearing enough to be used for socks, but it's also perfect for any 4 ply/fingering weight wool project. It's our go-to for baby clothes, gloves and lightweight sweaters. 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. The yarn is spun in Peru, where the fleece is first graded by highly-skilled workers to ensure consistent quality.
