Product Information

We offer one of the best blends of natural fibres for durable, practical and beautiful wool socks especially for people who want to avoid synthetic fibres. Because it is made with sheep's wool, it is warm in the winter.  The ramie in the yarn ensures excellent moisture absorption and the silk provides a very nice shine and high elasticity. 

This 4 ply yarn is very pleasant to wear. It doesn’t itch and feels very soft to the touch. Even though it is a sock yarn, you can also knit many other garments and accessories with it.

Tip: It is advisable to always order enough yarn for your desired model to ensure you knit your entire project with yarn of the same dye batch. In case of doubt, please make a gauge sample immediately after receiving the yarn. In this way, you can estimate whether you have ordered sufficient quantity and, if necessary, reorder directly.

Care

We recommend washing your knitwear by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent. Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to keep its shape. Please do not dry it on a heat source or in the sun!
