How divine are the new season colours for Ranco Sock Yarns. Kerry and I have both used Ranco in the past for children’s clothes and blankets. It is versatile ply and we have knitted it up as a 5ply or 4ply depending on needle size. You will not be disappointed with the new colours and the feel of the additions to the range. They are still a 75% merino/25% polymide mix, which is just what you need for sock yarn, however they seem to have made this a much softer yarn combination this year.
For the last 3 years Araucania have only added Multi colours to their sock yarn range. This year they have also added a stunning selection of solids as well. Just look at these …
… Just perfect for a lovely blanket or jumper for a special little person. They are a welcome addition to our luxury yarn range. While not quite as soft as our divine Sublime Baby Cashmere Silk Merino dk and 4ply or the beautiful Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, they will take a little more drastic treatment.
Of course you could also just make yourself some beautiful soft socks! Available online and in store now.
