More Information on Sock Yarn

I had a couple people comment and ask for some more information on the yarns I used in my socks.

This pair uses Unisono by Zitron.  It’s a 100% superwash merino wool that has aloe in it so it’s very soft!

This pair is made from Stroll Handpainted yarn from KnitPicks in the Tea party colorway.  It’s 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon.  Extremely soft and very reasonably priced!

This pair is made from Brown Sheep Wildfoote yarn in the Ragtime colorway.  Also 75% washable wool and 25% nylon and soft as well.

This pair is made from Wisdom Yarns Marathon Sock in the San Francisco 201 colorway.  It’s 75% wool and 25% nylon.  I just love the pattern that knits up as you go along!  Also very soft and bright!!


I have so many other fun yarns in my stash now and I’m looking forward to using them all!  I am totally in love with sock yarn :)

thanks so much! I've used Stroll and Wildfoote -- will have to keep my eyes open for the other two.

Wow! I take it you like the toe up version? I wish there was somewhere nearby I could take a class. I've made two pairs and have yarn for 2 more but I've taken a break to knit a few other things. And, to get back to work on Tisket a Tasket -- and, and. I'd like to know how to make a stretchy top part. Although, the pattern I have is knit top down... oh well. On to quilting again.

Those socks are absolutely fabulous, Beth - you'll have to do a tutorial!!! Any itchiness with the wool?
