The Simple Sock Collective is a “secret/mystery knit along/ sock club” featuring three “secret” sock patterns.
Each sock design featured in the collection is knit out a non-superwash, nylon-free, naturally-dyed (breed specific) yarn from three different natural dyers.
Each month from April to June, a new sock will be released (you won’t get to see what the pattern looks like before completing it, nor know which dyer comes next!) and yarn kits from the corresponding dyers will be available for purchase.

The sock patterns will feature some very simple yet engaging stitches that will allow you to relax completely but remain entertained and engaged with your knitting! The sock designs will be stable in your sock drawer; and they might become the first thing that you want to grab to keep your feet warm and toasty. These socks are designed to be the most cosy things for your feet: thicker fabric, and cosy textures!

Sock n.2

Now for the second pattern from the collection!

This time, I decided to play with a yarn that is a little bit usual: Hey Mama Wolf Sock yarn, which is a blend of Merino, Corrediale (80% wool) and ramie (20%) (non- superwash/ mulseign free, plastic free). The unusual blend creates the sturdiest socks (both in texture and in longevity). The nettle is a great substitute to the more conventional nylon that is found in sock yarns, creating some really hard- wearing socks that you can wear in your wellies!


1 skein of Hey Mama Wolf Sock yarn N.4 (sport weight)
80% wool from south america 20% ramie, a plant fiber from the nettle family 100 g ~ 300 m/ 3.6 oz ~ 382 yards

17 sts and 22 rows = 2” in stockinette st in the round blocked. (Row gauge is important to maintain symmetrical distance between the bobbles)
