About Solemates: The sock yarn of your dreams - this yarn is incredibly soft and sooo cozy! We decided to have a little fun with our ombré socks and make some striped versions in our best-selling colors. We've selected key colors in the related gradient and made a striped yarn for socks that are a little bit wilder! We are offering these striped sock sets in 12 popular and vibrant colorways.
This set comprises two identical balls of Shaniko merino fingering, 228 yards each to make the perfect matched striped socks. These are so scrumptious we bet you can't stop at one pair!
Please note: All current and future colors are listed below, only the pictured colors at left are currently available for purchase though not all of these are in stock at any one time, we will be adding colors daily as we get them dyed up for you! If you don't see the color you need, do check back.
About the fiber: Our Shaniko superwash merino is grown in Oregon and milled in North Carolina. Shaniko wool is supplied under the Responsible Wool Standard, protecting animal welfare, social welfare and land health. Not only does the yarn feel good to the touch, it feels good to know we are supporting ethically grown wool and respectful farming practices.
The yarn is hand-dyed at our studio in North Adams with acid dyes using processes that are gentle to the environment. The superwash treatment allows your finished product to be washed in a washing machine, and dried on low in the dryer.
The superwash process in conjunction with our gradient dyeing methods creates a slightly speckled yarn, this is normal and gives the yarn an appealing gentle heathered look, this will be different from other yarns of ours that you may have used in the past.
As with all our yarns, we strongly suggest you knit a swatch when making a gauge-specific item as with washing, the gauge will expand somewhat.
Sock set includes a basic sock pattern.
