Magic Sock Wool has the loveliest, gradual color changes, which are exciting to follow. The surprisingly lovely nuances, which unfold as you knit, make it a little more fun to knit socks – even the second one. But do not let Magic Sock Wool being a sock yarn stop you in your creativity. Use it, for example, in shawls, scarves, hats, etc., and it is lovely in shirts and cardigans. Here, the magical change in colors can give your work an extra lift; knit for example a lovely, striped cardigan, or use it for edging and pockets – the possibilities are endless.

Magic Sock Wool is a single-thread yarn, which means that it is not spun from multiple threads. Its rustic structure is reminiscent of hand spun yarn with a natural variation in thickness. With single-thread yarn, we get a delightful softness and some incredible colors. It also means that the yarn feels loose and not as strong as normal sock yarn.

Magic Sock Wool consists of 70% wool with 30% nylon for durability. The wool is super wash-treated and can therefore be machine-washed at 30°C.

NB! The gradual color changes cause the skeins to appear quite different within the same color number.

I have made several pairs of socks with this yarn, it is beautifully soft (can't understand those who found it scratchy) the colours are gorgeous. It is a single yarn (ie not plied) and so doesn't unpick easily and definitely not good for a warp yarn for weaving. I will be sure to use this again


Laura

The colours are just stunning and it feels really nice to the touch. I can't wait to start knitting with it!


Debbie

Please can we have an easy pattern for socks in crochet


Stella

Lovely squishy ball, will make gorgeous socks


Lisa

Lovely soft yarn with beautiful colours. However the yarn is extremely uneven varying from small sections of 8ply equivalent and down to long stretches on 2ply which means unfortunately it is difficult to use for patterns where a solid gauge is important. It's also difficult to undo mistakes as it knots up incredibly easy. Unlikely to buy again which is a real shame because it's beautiful.
