If you’re looking for sock-knitting nirvana, you’ve found it in this sheep-to-skein US-produced sock yarn. With a tight twist, and just the right amount of nylon, you’ll find that your socks practically knit themselves. Hand-dyed colors can vary from skein to skein. We recommend alternating skeins in projects requiring more than one skein.
