Hand Dyed

Hand Dyed Sock Yarn

There’s something about sock yarn that I love.

The weight of the yarn is great. It’s not thick and heavy. Its light and fine and inviting. Its speaks of beautifully soft socks that keep the toes as warm as toast. Sock yarn can be used for knitting anything really. Baby knitting is great for using up sock yarn. Any pattern lends itself to sock yarn. The color availability can sometimes not be too good though. Much of the commercial dyed yarn is variegated and bright.

I like to  my own yarn. That way I can get the colors I like and I also get to do the fun part. The hand dyeing. !
