Solid Socks

I appreciate a variegated or self-striping sock yarn as much as the next gal, but sometimes you need a solid sock yarn in the repertoire.
As part of our latest shipment from Cascade, we received a nice selection of Heritage Sock in beautiful range of solid colors. This is a great standard superwash sock yarn.
Alpaca Sox is a lofty alpaca blend with a little halo, perfect for socks, scarves, shawls, gloves...
Artyarns Ultramerino 4 is machine washable and very soft.
Summer Sox is a squishy cotton/merino blend in some nice bright colors.
(We have most of these in handpainted and variegated versions, too.)
We'll be receiving more Spud & Chloe Fine, a washable merino/silk blend, in the next month or so.
If you're thinking about socks but aren't into the flashy colors, these lovely solids might just fit the bill.


  1. The weather is taking a turn for the better if you are in Portland and love to knit. Beautiful yarn! I'll be in!!

  2. We are getting more and more everyday! So much inspiring stuff.
