4ply wool fingering weight, sock yarns

4ply wool fingering weight and sock yarns

In the UK we call fingering weight yarn 4ply, as typically it was a finer yarn spun from 4 plies of yarn, but many 4ply yarns are now spun from only one or two plies.

4ply yarn is great for socks, shawls, gloves and other accessories such as shawls, wraps and scarves.   It is lightweight but depending on the wool content can also be lovely and warm.

It is wonderful for Fair Isle and colour work projects using 100% wool to give a lighter garment despite the almost double thickness of the resulting patterned fabric.

It produces beautiful lacy knits and often blocks well to show the resulting lacework pattern.

It can be stranded double to knit a heavier garment or to achieve ombre type effects in the garment or fabric.

Superwash sock and fingering weight yarns are fantastic for baby clothing as busy Mum’s will appreciate a machine washable garment which is both easy care and hard wearing.  Sock yarns often contain up to 25% nylon to add strength, think heels and toes that get a lot of wear going in and out of your shoes, to the yarn.
