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

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.

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.....

Luci Zahray

I am a relatively new knitting and was looking for some nice sock yarn. Happy feet was easy to work with, had a nice feel while I was knitting and made a lovely pair of socks.

Anne Cloward

I love this yarn and have knit socks with it before. The colors draw me in at first. Then when I get to casting on, I am impressed with the strength of the yarn. They wear like iron, which is good, since I am hard on my socks. Definitely a go to sock yarn for me.

Catherine Batt

I just love this sock yarn. So lovely to knit and so warm. I like the idea of buying the Colour Bags because I can never decide which colours to buy and with this I can be surprised. Great value too.

Carla Johnson

I LOVE this yarn!! The colors are crisp and vibrant it crocheted up beautifully. Now I’m knitting up a beret with it! So far it looks fantastic! I’ve ordered a lot of this yarn in various colors and I was saddened to here that it’s going to be discontinued. Hopefully Hobbii Yarns will bring it back every once in a while if so, I’m on it!!! Thank You🧶🌹

Renecia Wilson

I have just received my shipment and the colors are beyond my expectations! I can wait to cast on. My order consisted of colors 2, 3, 9, and 10. I am definitely going to order the remaining colors. I learned of your website from the Urban Gypsy Crochet, and I’m so glad I tuned in that day. I will be sure to recommend to my knit/crochet friends.


The stripes between the pattern sections were very distinct and clear. Very nice. Could use a little longer pattern part. A sturdy yarn - I would expect the socks I made to wear well. I wish it came in a few more colors. I knitted the Baikal, and it was prettier in real life than it appears here. Quite bold tones! It did have a knot in the skein.

Carla Johnson

Wonderful yarn! Works up beautifully on my needles. I’m working on a shawl and two skeins made a very elegant shawl that I can wear with a dress for dinner or just jeans and a classic t shirt. Purchased quite a few skeins so they’ll be at my fingertips when whatever color variations I prefer. Thank You Hobbii, I’ve 2 more orders waiting.
