Tough Sock is the new sock weight yarn from The Uncommon Thread! Tougher than Ellen Ripley but still lovely and soft, this yarn is suitable for any item that will get lots of wear. It can be used for not only socks, but baby items, garments, hats and can be worn next to the skin.
As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every 2 rows or so.
Although I recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.
I care deeply about the environment and am aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so I make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.
I try to ensure all colours look true on my monitor, but let’s face it, we know they vary, so if you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
