New Yarns at Midnightsky Fibers!
We have a new yarn here at Midnightsky Fibers, a luscious, 100% wool squishy sock yarn. Our sock yarn was spun for us by a small family run mill from the same wool we use to make our handspun yarns, kits/clubs, and hand painted fibers. Our sock yarn comes in both hand painted colors (more to come as the color samples can be properly swatched!) and in natural cream.
Midnightsky Fibers handpainted sock yarn is a luscious, squishy yarn slightly thicker than a “normal” sock yarn (7-8 stitches to the inch). Works up well at 7 stitches to the inch on a size 1 needle for a firm gauge suitable for socks, or 6 stitches on a size 2 or 3 to the inch for a slightly less firm fabric still suitable for socks.
Approximate sizing is as follows (based on an average size, your yardage and mileage may vary of course!)
-Size 1 needle- 56 stitches around for an average size medium adult female sock.
-Size 2-3 needle- 48 stitches around for an average size medium adult female sock.
There is enough yardage in each skein to make a pair of socks, a short scarf, mittens, or a hat with some yarn left to spare.
