Every once in a while, it is such a joy to walk into a yarn shop, pick up a single ball of yarn, and leave knowing that your purchase will knit or crochet up into a project that is something you will actually use/wear regularly.
A single skein for a hat or a cowl, or perhaps a ball for a pair of socks. Just one ball of yarn, and you’ve got yourself a pair! Sock yarn makes for such a wonderfully ‘guilt-free’ purchase/souvenir, and before you know it- you may find that you have a (sock yarn) stash!
Comfort Wolle Yarn is a company that operates and produces yarn out of Germany. Making gorgeous, economical yarn for knitters of all tastes and skill levels, this is a company that we urge you to check out at your local yarn shop– that is, if you haven’t already!
Well known for their sock yarn, this company likes to do things a little differently. Rather than release all of their newest shades of sock yarn all at once, they instead spread them out over a few months. How genius! One can only knit so many socks in a month anyway… so this seems like a perfect plan! Starting in September, a new collection of eight shades of self striping sock yarn will be released each month. Available in bright bold palettes, and neutral and subdued combinations, each month we can guarantee that there will be a colour available for every taste.
Should you prefer to knit the more traditional, solid coloured socks, Comfort Wolle also has a selection of eight solid shades in their Sockenwolle Uni. Great for cables, lace and those pure and simple ribbed socks for the more conservative sock wearers in your life. This 75% Superwash Wool and 25% Nylon wool is hard wearing and easy to care for- much like the self striping version!
All of Comfort Wolle sock yarns are packaged in 100 gram balls, meaning that just one ball will make you a pair of socks. With the Sockenwolle Uni currently available in local yarn shops across the country, and new self striping shades rolling in as indicated on our website, this yarn will surprise you, and the price will delight you.
Happy knitting everyone!
