Liberty Wool Light
100% Washable Wool
This yarn’s machine-washability and vibrant colors create beautiful fine-gauge garments. Liberty Wool Light is an outstanding sport-weight version of the perennial favorite Liberty Wool with the same washability in both solid and printed colors!

This pair of socks used yarn remaining from the Liberty Wool Light High Kirk knee sock pattern with only scrap amounts of each color left over after completion. If you are purchasing yarn separately to make these socks, you will have enough yarn to make 2 pairs.
