Tough Sock

With a blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon this yarn was made to be tough enough to wear on your feet but it is so pretty you might want to wear it head to toe. It's another stunning yarn from those talented German hand dyers; Walk Collection.

Hand-dying wool is an effortful and time-consuming endeavor, yet it is the only route to achieve the vivid colours, and complex patterns that Walk Collective is known for. They are similarly conscientious when choosing and sourcing their fibres making animal welfare and humane labor practices a priority. Walk Collection is also careful to conserves water and energy and use environmentally-friendly dyes.
