Sock Yarn

Sock yarn is a traditional yarn that that has been reinforced so the features and benefits make it perfect for socks. It has been treated so it can be machine washed and is often mixed with other fibres that make it extra durable. Sock yarn comes in a variety of different configurations and colours.

The many attributes of sock yarn

The advantages of using sock yarn rather than regular yarn for crocheting or knitting socks is, that sock yarn is much more durable. You could say that it's just an enhanced version of regular yarn. Additionally, one of the most important advantages of sock yarn is, that it’s superwash treated. When something is superwash treated it means, that the yarn is particularly suitable for everyday use and can withstand a machine wash at up to 40 degrees without losing its shape or colour.

Good for everyday life

Whether you're in to a single-shade and stylish look or a more colourful and unique look for your socks, we have the yarn for you. We sell both single and multi-coloured yarn, so you can make exactly what you like. The unique thing about sock yarn is how the pattern turns out – you could have a quick change of colour or a little longer between the colour changes. It’s entirely up to you to choose what kind of pattern you like the best. Some like a lot of jumbled up colour changes, while others are more in to calm patterns or the all-classic, single-shades, black, grey or white. Thus, sock yarn and the making of socks often becomes a personal matter where you can create and express your own style.

As we all know, a pair of home-knitted socks can do wonders on a cold winter morning where they keep feet warm and cosy. In addition, socks are a relatively easy project to embark on, but will be a very well received gift, especially because of the personal effort that has been put into it. There is no doubt that we, here in Scandinavia, are big patrons of home-knitted socks, as we can make use of them for at least 6 months of the year. Therefore, they are also very suitable for birthday and Christmas presents for both children and adults alike.

What our customers say about Sock Yarn

Margaret Yeark

Love the colours and the quality of the yarn in the 10 pkt sock yarn special... I am going to use the yarn to knit a rug for the women's shelter in my town.....

michelle stephens

Yarn came so quickly. The yarn is lovely and soft. I've already cast on a pair of toe ups. I will definitely order more sock yarn, it's just fantastic.

Brenda Medlock

Love the colors and yarn, but haven't used any yet because I'm working on another pair of socks out of sock yarn with the prym dpns I ordered.

Jan Lachowycz

I was recently introduced to hobblii and I couldn’t be more pleased. As I live in the US I never expected that my order would arrive from Denmark as quickly as it did! The sock yarn I ordered is quite lovely in appearance and my family, my friends, and I are looking forward to having nice warm socks for the winter.

Naomi Roberts

Having knit well over 250 pair of socks in the past 6 years I feel qualified to review this yarn. It is delightful to knit with. I cast on toe up using the Magic Loop method and then switched to an 8 inch circular needle US1. This sock yarn is a dream to knit with. The yarn is consistent and does not split. It is soft and has excellent stitch definition. The first sock is being knit with color 2. The patterning is pleasing to the eye. There is enough yarn (459 yards) to easily complete an adult pair of socks with a generous leg, or 2 pair of shorty adult socks. I combined my order with a friend to get the free shipping. She is going to be just as delighted with it as I am. She wants to knit a scarf with hers. There is enough yardage to complete a scarf, or small shawl. This yarn is superb. I highly recommend it.

Lia Lie

I had been buying from Hobbii for sometimes now & I have become their regular customer. It's because ALL their yarns which I had bought so far, including this sock yarn, had been fabulous ! They have good quality, mostly soft, and this Antarctica sock yarn is one of them. And the most important thing for me, personally, they will tell you honestly about the yarn. Not hyping it just for the sake of selling it. Not to mention, their services are fantastic. Shipment has always been quick & they are very friendly , too. So yes, I will always be their loyal customer, and keep up the good work , Hobbii ! You guys are awesome ! Lia , Auckland, NZ.
