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
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 love this yarn. I am totally addicted to knitting socks, and I'm so happy to have found this site. This yarn is fantastic value for money, the colours are lovely. I am very pleased with my purchase and have always been grateful for the fast delivery and courteous service. This is my favourite place to buy yarn online!
I bought this yarn in dark green & cobalt blue, & the colours are lovely - exactly as they appear in the pictures. This was a faultless yarn to knit with. I used 2.75 mm needles as I was looking for a dense, warm finish - larger needles would work ok too. Will definitely buy again .
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
Got wool from a friend as she couldn't get hang of crochet but was thankful as I love verigated wool save sewing in loose ends. Great value I be going on here in future found out from a friend.
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.
Amazingly soft yarn, i got these to go with the Happy feet print yarn so can do contrast cuff heel and toes, i am so very happy with this yarn i will be back to get more.
Loved this yarn. I made socks on 2.50 needles and it knitted up beautifully with no stranding and produced lovely soft socks. Very pleased. Have now ordered more
Lovely yarn and the colours are beautiful. I was so pleased that delivery was quick. I have no hesitation in recommending Hobbi.
