Our newest yarn base Merino Nylon DK launches in this week's Shop Update!
Living at the bottom of a mountain in Tassie pretty much calls for hand knit socks all year round - and as much as we love our fingering weight socks, sometimes we just need something a little warmer to keep our toes warm.
Being hard on my socks, I needed a nice strong yarn and I'm pleased so say our new Merino Nylon DK base fits the bill nicely.
It's made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon and offers a generous 243m per 100gm skein from which you'll be able to knit a pair of full sized adult socks.
The other bonus of DK weight socks is just how quickly they knit up - perfect also for gift knitting.
But this yarn base isn't just perfect for socks, but pretty much any DK accessory or garment too. It's a nice plump yarn with a good twist, leading to great stitch definition.
We thought we'd share some of our favourite DK weight sock patterns with you today - happy sock knitting.

We are so proud of the knitting community for the overwhelming response and support to our little fundraiser.
As you know we teamed up with Sam and Olga from Thread & Maple and Designer Tracie Miller of the Grocery Girls, to run a fundraiser both in Australia and Canada for breast cancer research and awareness.
The proceeds from both our fundraisers came to well over $10,000.
