Self Patterning Sock Yarns
Several different brands of sock yarn are available below, including the newest for fall 2023, Infinity Sock.
One ball of any of these brands will knit a pair of socks. And each of them is machine washable wool with nylon added.
In my experience, the Supersocke line of sock yarns (and there have been MANY over the years) is a really great wearing sock yarn. I have a few pairs that I only just this year relegated to the trash after at least 13 years of wearing and washing! This particular Supersocke version is Extrafine Merino, so super soft!
The photo shown here of the 6 colorwqys show how each of the Supersocke colors knits up.
The Supersocke is $24.99 because it is extrafine merino.
The second brand of self patterning sock yarns available on this page is new. Cazasocks is out of the Adriafil mill in Italy and features 4 of the most popular colors of their Knit-Col yarn. This yarn has a nice tight twist so it should wear well. It is $19.99
The newest, Infinity Sock, is mulesing free and chlorine free and also has a nice twist so I expect will wear well. Each ball band shows how that colorway knits up - something a little different than the other two!
For other yarns that are great choices for socks but do not knit up in the traditional jacquarding pattern, check out Tough Love by Sweet Georgia, Arne & Carlos, Freia Solemates, Tenderfoot Ultimate Sock by Malabrigo and Zauberball Crazy.
