Sock yarn is a traditional yarn that that has been reinforced so the features and benefits make it perfect for socks. It has been treated so it can be machine washed and is often mixed with other fibres that make it extra durable. Sock yarn comes in a variety of different configurations and colours.
The many attributes of sock yarn
The advantages of using sock yarn rather than regular yarn for crocheting or knitting socks is, that sock yarn is much more durable. You could say that it's just an enhanced version of regular yarn. Additionally, one of the most important advantages of sock yarn is, that it’s superwash treated. When something is superwash treated it means, that the yarn is particularly suitable for everyday use and can withstand a machine wash at up to 40 degrees without losing its shape or colour.
Good for everyday life
Whether you're in to a single-shade and stylish look or a more colourful and unique look for your socks, we have the yarn for you. We sell both single and multi-coloured yarn, so you can make exactly what you like. The unique thing about sock yarn is how the pattern turns out – you could have a quick change of colour or a little longer between the colour changes. It’s entirely up to you to choose what kind of pattern you like the best. Some like a lot of jumbled up colour changes, while others are more in to calm patterns or the all-classic, single-shades, black, grey or white. Thus, sock yarn and the making of socks often becomes a personal matter where you can create and express your own style.
As we all know, a pair of home-knitted socks can do wonders on a cold winter morning where they keep feet warm and cosy. In addition, socks are a relatively easy project to embark on, but will be a very well received gift, especially because of the personal effort that has been put into it. There is no doubt that we, here in Scandinavia, are big patrons of home-knitted socks, as we can make use of them for at least 6 months of the year. Therefore, they are also very suitable for birthday and Christmas presents for both children and adults alike.

What our customers say about Sock Yarn
Great sock yarn, knits very smoothly. Got the Antarctica too. Love the selection of colours in both.
I chose a few colours to make block coloured heels and toes when using with the Lucky Bag Sock Yarn. This looks excellent quality for the price and I look forward to using it!
It is one of my favourite yarns for hat making! It's quite dense and the colours are great! So vivid! They never disappoint me! The change of colour happens gradually in smooth grading. Perfect for 3 mm (even 3.5mm) crochet hooks. Sometimes it gets slightly thicker when the new colour is starting, but it really is a minor difference, not affecting my knitting at all.
I have just finished knitting a pair of socks for my newborn grandaughter with this wool, it’s lovely and soft and the colours compliment each other very well, I’m going to make a pair for her mum next as the wool knits up so nicely.
I have not used this yarn yet as I have a pair of socks on the go but its next on my list. I bought this for the colour as I don't like boring socks and not disappointed, love the colour and is very soft. Cant wait to get started
My daughter bought me some of this as she knows I love variegated yarns and sock knitting. It is just gorgeous. Soft, easy to handle, and makes really pretty socks with no effort on the patterning.
awesome yarn for soft warm socks, i got some of the colours and some of the happy feet xl so my socks can have contrasting cuff heel and toes, so easy to work with, i will be back for more.
Very nice yarn for sock knitting and I am delighted with the pattern which is made automatically. It was not difficult to match the yarn so that the socks have the same patterns.
I am planning on knitting Frank Gehry (architect) Tree of Life socks for my son and this wool will be excellent! Then lots of other socks as Christmas presents. ...
Perfect for knitting socks, just the right amount of elasticity & a good lightweight yarn for my 5 year olds summer socks.
