Allow us to take you on a fun circus adventure together with our Silly Socks yarn. This lovely colored sock yarn will remind you of a lively circus show, lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face.

Our Silly Socks yarn is made out of 75% wool which will keep your feet warm and cozy, while the 25% of polyamide (nylon) will make your socks resistant and sturdy. It comes in a 100 g skein and one single skein will be enough to make a pair of standard-sized socks. 

Silly Socks is super-wash treated and this means that it can be machine washed at 30°C (86°F). This will definitely make your life easier when taking care of your beautiful socks. Even though this is a classical sock yarn, please don’t limit yourself to only knitting socks with it. Cardigans for children, mittens, beanies, etc. can all be created with this yarn.

Feel free to play with your creativity and work with two threads simultaneously (e.g. lay the thread from the outside together with the thread from the inside). The colours will then get mixed even more creating an even more unexpected and fun effect that will look great in small projects as well as bigger ones. 

If you want to stick to creating socks one 100 g skein will be enough for a standard pair of socks until size 40 (UK: 6.5, US: 8.5). For socks bigger than that, please make sure to get two skeins.

Are you ready to start some handicraft acrobatics with Silly Socks? We know we are.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I love all of the bright colors available with Silly socks and that only one skein is needed for a pair. It is a very soft yarn and my price during online shopping was great. I will share pictures once I use it.


Ilse

Fantastic sock yarn. It's nice and sturdy, but soft at the same time. The colours are gorgeous and the colour changes are interesting, so you will have knitted a pair of socks in no time. Definitely recommend!


Brynne

You cannot beat this yarn for this price. It’s a good sturdy sock yarn; the spin and the ply are both reasonably tight which should lead to good wear. The colors are super saturated and fun as well.


Christine

I have 5 of these balls of wool. My fave right now is circus princess. The stripes were on point. I made a gift pair and a pair of shorties for myself. Will be repurchasing for sure


April

This yarn works up very nicely. It is not splitty at all and the self striping is random and fun. It feels very bouncy and is a little rough but feels great worked up as socks.
