Allow us to take you on a fun circus adventure together with our Silly Socks yarn. This lovely colored sock yarn will remind you of a lively circus show, lift your spirits, and bring a smile to your face.

Our Silly Socks yarn is made out of 75% wool which will keep your feet warm and cozy, while the 25% polyamide (nylon) will make your socks resistant and sturdy. 

Silly Socks is super-wash treated and this means that it can be machine washed at 30°C (86°F or cold wash). This will definitely make your life easier when taking care of your beautiful socks. Even though this is a classical sock yarn, please don’t limit yourself to only knitting socks with it. Cardigans for children, mittens, beanies, etc. can all be created with this yarn.

Feel free to play with your creativity and work with two threads simultaneously (e.g. lay the thread from the outside together with the thread from the inside). The colors will then get mixed even more creating an even more unexpected and fun effect that will look great in small projects as well as bigger ones. 

If you want to stick to creating socks one 100 g skein will be enough for a standard pair of socks until size 40 (UK: 6.5, US: 8.5). For socks bigger than that, please make sure to get two skeins.

Are you ready to start some handicraft acrobatics with Silly Socks? We know we are.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at:

I really like this yarn. I'm new to knitting socks, but I'm sure the socks in this yarn are really cool!
I love the fact that you don't know what colour the yarn is going to be next and it makes a very colourful and versatile piece.
The yarn is nice and durable. At first I thought I'd go with two yarns, but the classic style works well too


I have only just started knitting socks, I started with the ragg sock pattern in DK yarn. Now I'm onto more delicate socks. This is much finer yarn than I'm used to working with but it is easy to handle and is producing a wonderfully vibrant sock. I also love that it has such a high percentage of wool as I'm not a fan of artificial fibres.


This is lovely sock wool. I haven't knitted socks yet but the feel of this is lovely and not at all scratchy. I've downloaded one of the hobbii sock patterns so I'll post a photo when I've made them. Can't wait to make my first pair of socks and ordering more colours in this range.


First time using this silly socks. It soft to touch not scratchy at all. Different colours to choose from. I’ve brought 5 Exciting Acrobatics 05. Going to make a crochet top or maybe a dress. Will see what I make 😁


I got no 09 and it’s just the most joyful yarn! Makes me happy just picking it up! It knits very well and it’s very soft, not scratchy. And I think one skein might just make two pairs of small socks ☺️
