Maniototo Sock Yarn is hand-dyed in lots of approx. 1kg resulting in a semi-solid colour effect. Worsted spun with more twist than a non-sock 4ply yarn. As well as being suited to sock knitting, this yarn is great for other 4ply projects such as garments, baby wear and shawls. The four-ply structure makes this a beautifully rounded yarn that has good stitch definition and is well suited to cables and other textures. A single skein is more than adequate for an adult pair of socks. We recommend that you knit your socks at a tight gauge using the smallest needles you can comfortably manage. This will allow the best comfort and wearability of your socks.
