Although hand-knit socks are perfect for showing off the beautiful color variation in each unique skein of yarn, this versatile yarn can also be used for fingering-weight shawls, hats, mittens, and colorwork.
Sock yarn differs from other fingering or sport-weight yarns because it is washable. The blending of nylon or another stretchable fiber adds strength to the heels and toes of your socks and makes socks easier to repair.
Lambspun provides unique and spectacular yarns to help make each of your projects one-of-a-kind. Each skein of yarn is characteristically variegated, adding to its special nature and charm. Please note that dye lots will have variations in color due to hand-painting techniques. For larger projects, rotate skeins periodically for a more subtle effect or use strategic placement of skeins. Be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project, as we cannot guarantee the availability of additional skeins of a single dye lot
