It may be called Sock Yarn, but it’s great for so much more than that! If you’ve heard of Hedgehog Fibres you’ve definitely heard of Sock Yarn. Fibre artists use it for for shawls, scarves, baby items, hats, and…the occasional sock, too! This fingering weight superwash yarn is 90% merino wool and 10% nylon. And it’s soooo nice on your skin!
The 21.5 micron merino wool is mulesing free, softly spun, non-scratchy yarn. The perfect balance of soft and durable, the dye takes especially beautifully on this base. Sock Yarn is the ideal yarn for accessories, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns. It can also be held double for a heavier weight project which makes a soft, supple fabric with even more variegation.
NOTE: Hedgehog Fibres hand-dyes this yarn, so there can be considerable variation between skeins, even when simultaneously dyed. We have used photos supplied by Hedgehog Fibres to ensure accuracy. However, some batches vary from these photos more than others, and not all photos are on the Sock Yarn base. So, if you are unsure about any colour, please email us and we will be happy to answer any questions or send you a photograph of our current stock! We also recommend alternating skeins if you use more than one skein of the same colourway in the same project, and want a consistent look (eg for sweaters).

Patterns for Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn

Beata Jezek’s free Le Pouf cardigan pattern has the balloon sleeves you’re looking for. There’s also a cool colour transition built into the design.

The intricate Baseline shawl pattern is made with a simple garter stitch. Because you add width in sections, you can make it as large as you want it to be, from a small wrap to a cozy shanket. The addition of Hedgehog Fibres’ Kidsilk Lace gives it a translucent effect.
