Favourite Sock is super-soft, yet hard-wearing enough to be used for socks. It has beautiful stitch definition and unparalleled ‘smooshiness’. It’s the perfect signature yarn for us to showcase our full palette of dye effects.

Not just for socks, it’s perfect for any 4 ply/fingering weight wool project, especially baby clothes, gloves and lightweight sweaters, and being a superwash yarn, it’s easy to care for too.

Our merino is farmed in Argentina, where it is sorted by skilled workers to ensure consistent high quality. It is guaranteed mulesing-free and farmers are supported by the mill to raise their sheep under ethical farming practices.

  • Machine wash at 40°
  • 100% superwash merino
  • Spun in England, ethically farmed in Argentina

Why don’t you have a Nylon blend sock yarn?

Lots of reasons! Nylon is plastic, it’s made from petrochemicals, we don’t love how it feels to wear, but mostly because it causes microfibre pollution.

What the heck is microfibre pollution?

With every wash, our clothes release tiny strands called microfibres (one piece of clothing can release 700,000 fibres per wash). These microscopic fibres cannot be effectively filtered-out and, while natural fibres like wool break down, synthetic fibres make their way into our fibres and oceans intact. Micro-plastics are thought to make up 15-31% of the plastic in our oceans. This invisible pollution is present in fish stocks worldwide and it has been confirmed to be in our food chain.

That’s scary s$~#!

We think so too, that’s why we decided to phase out Nylon and other plastic fibres in our yarns.
