As far as we are concerned Travelknitter super sock is the last word in solid coloured sock yarn. In fact to call it solid coloured does it a serious injustice as the layers and layers of dye that Larissa applies to the yarn to get the exact shade that she is looking for give the yarn a depth and intensity that our photography simply can’t do justice to.
With 75% Blue Faced Leicester and 25% nylon and a tight worsted spin the yarn is soft but strong enough to make sturdy socks. Its gentle lustre also means that it can be used to make delicate shawls.
