Hand Dyed Sock Set Mix with DPN Needles
These sock knitting sets are so fun! Each knitting set is hand-dyed with care and includes everything you need to create your unique pair of socks: one skein as the main color beautifully paired with a matching or contrasting mini for heel/toe/cuff design. Now, I've added the perfect sock needles for the ideal gift!
While these skeins look delicate, the tight 4 ply resists wear and tear, letting this 100% superwash Merino sock yarn hold its own against nylon blends.
Whether you create socks to slide around the house in or a hat to keep your noggin warm in the wintry breeze, you’ll love working with this blend of hand-dyed colors. If you're making a shawl, the mini can be used for a full picot bind off or similar edges, or use to fade into your next skein.

Apothefaery yarn is dyed in small batches. If using more than one skein per color way, its highly recommended that you alternate skeins every 3-5 rows.
We recommend always washing your knits in cool water with a high quality wool wash. Superwash fibers are processed so that they can be machine washed if desired. Larger garments can still benefit from drying laid flat, but socks can be dried in the dryer. Bear in mind, machine washing knits will shorten their lifespan. I use a lingerie bag for my machine washed knits, and always use a gentle cycle with cool/cold water.
We take great care in rinsing skeins thoroughly. Hot water temperatures can break the bonds of dye and cause bleeding and, of course, felting! Squeeze out excess water while supporting the weight of the fabric, block to desired shape and lay flat to dry.
