Put your best foot forward in true Deramores style! Consider these sock yarns your must-haves before taking on any sort of sock knitting or crochet project, however simple or complex it may be.
It’s true that you can knit socks with pretty much any yarn – but there are some materials in particular that are better suited to helping you create these garments.
It often comes down to personal preference. Many of our customers prefer the comfy feel of natural fibres on their feet, while others would prefer to choose nylon- or acrylic-based sock wool to ensure their creations are more hard-wearing (and, if they have superwash properties, more likely to survive a cycle in a typical washing machine). Thick, chunky or higher ply wool for socks is great if you want to knit a pair that are really snuggly and perfect for wearing around the house. Worsted weight socks are ideal for hiking or sports, but most of the traditional sock knitting wool is exceptionally lightweight and can be knitted on very small needles for a fit that can adapt to your foot and provide unrivalled comfort, wherever you are and whatever you have planned for your day.
Deramores stocks a great range of sock yarn, and all of these products are available in a phenomenal range of colours. Wool for socks can be crafted into virtually any pattern, so whatever kind of look you’re eager to achieve, we’re certain we’ll have the right sock yarn here.
