We have taken down all our Knitsch Sock while we pack it up for Knit August Nights. There is still some on the shop shelves, and we will restock the online yarn by Wednesday 28 August.
Knitsch sock is a high twist 100% New Zealand merino yarn, dyed with love by Tash in Wellington. While we may call it sock, it lends itself beautifully to all manner of projects. It wears really well as adult garments, washes like a dream for baby knits and of course is heaven for your toes!

gentle cold machine wash / lay flat to dry in shade
The more you wash it, the softer it gets - we recommend a cold machine cycle with a specialist wool ash. Please don't use fabric softener. If you are using a dark colour next to a light colour, give the dark colour a pre-wash before knitting to help remove any excess dye. Our advice is to pop your skein in a lukewarm bath with a few drops of wool wash (not fabric softener!) or dishwashing liquid, leave for 15 minutes then into your washing machine on the spin cycle before hanging to dry.
Due to the hand-dyeing process, please allow for some variation in colour. We do our best to replicate colours so they are as similar as possible between batches, however environmental factors (and us being human!) can change the outcomes.
We recommend you alternate skeins in your project for even colour distribution.
