I’m hard on my socks, guys. I wear them 24/7. Literally day and night. And I wash them in the washing machine and dry them in the dryer. If I can’t wash it, I don’t want it. Anyone else?!
Over the past year, I have found so much joy knitting socks. It’s so amazing to use tiny needles and yarn to create something so beautiful AND practical. Because of this, I have tried a lot of different sock yarn. As someone who actually wears their handmade socks AND washes and dries them, I have strong feelings about the type of yarn that’s actually best for socks. Since they take so long to make, I think they should be able to last a long time as well!
I’m sharing my absolute favorite sock yarn that I believe is beautiful AND high quality, won’t break the bank and will last for a long, long time. I’m also sharing some that did not work for me and I won’t use again. These are all just my own opinions, and you’re welcome to disagree if you’ve had other experiences. My only hope is that this helps anyone wanting to dive into sock knitting and is trying to pick out yarn!
