Ultimate Sock

standard yarn weight icon

We are excited to introduce one of our most-requested bases of yarn: Ultimate Sock, which contains 25% Nylon!

Ultimate Sock takes our sock yarn and elevates it a level by adding 25% Nylon to the superwash merino that everyone already knows and loves. It is perfect to knit your lovely socks and make sure they will be resistant and durable at the same time.

Ultimate Sock is a 4-ply with 420 yards yarn and we are introducing it with 30 beautiful colors, including some of our classics, such as Aniversario, Frank Ochre and some exclusive new colors; Patrick, Gloria and Zinnia.

Great for: Socks and garments with a lot of friction.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. 

When we dye our yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns.
When we assign a dye lot number the main use is to identify which skeins can be labeled and packed together. After our quality control team checks the skeins, they go to the labeling section and then are put in bags of five or ten (depending on the yarn).
Once the bags get to the yarn stores, most skeins go to different shelves where they can get mixed. The dye lot code is really helpful when you try to find skeins that match.

Unfortunately, we don't have a record of which yarn store receives a specific dye lot and it's impossible for us to find out where you can find the same dye lot skeins.  

The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.
