Presenting the answer to your families prayers. Worsted weight yarn for socks. "Normal" sock yarn is so small it takes weeks to finish a sock and your family needs warmth quick.

This yarn is exactly what you need.

Worsted weight, so it works up in a jiffy, and it has nylon in there for strength (you know your family is hard on slipper socks and you'd like to go more than 2 weeks without having to patch them!).

If you love this, but want to start right away, just put in the message to seller that you'd like this rolled up into a cake. That way you can get to work as soon as it arrives in the mail. Which thankfully, will be very quick!

A versatile worsted weight blend of 80% wool and 20% nylon.
A robust 215 yards each hank.

This comes in several colors you can find here: https://foreverwindingwool.com/shop/23714893/yarn-for-socks

This listing is for the color Smoke (medium gray)
Care: Hand wash in mild soap, lay to dry

Returns and exchange details

I want you to be happy with your purchase.

I will accept returns within ten days (14 on international) on all yarn that is returned in original condition. Please convo me within three days before sending an item back and let me know you are returning the article and the reason for the return. If there is an issue I need to take care of, I need to know. :-) I use delivery confirmation on all my orders and the ten-day period begins from the day the item is recorded as being delivered to your door.

Returned items must be shipped at buyers expense. ** Buyer also must have a delivery confirmation number on any returned packages to track any packages.** Return items in a suitable envelope/box that will ensure a safe return. I cannot refund your purchase if I determine that you use inferior shipping materials or if the item is lost in the mail while returning to me.

International orders outside the US, if you don't contact me within 14 days to initiate the return, so I receive it within 30 days, then the item purchased is yours. In the unlikely event of a return, I will refund your full purchase price, less the shipping once I receive the item.

Knitting needles. Some of what I offer is one of a kind, and may not be replaceable. I might be able to provide a similar substitute in some cases if your needles were damaged in shipping. Again, communication is the key. :-)

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I care for my finished hand knit wool or wool blend items?

I love wool fiber the way it comes off the sheep. None of the yarn I carry has been treated with chemicals to make it machine washable.

I recommend that you hand wash your wool project with gentle shampoo in cool water. If using a gentle soap manufactured specifically for washing wool (not Woolite), you do not have to rinse. If you use a regular detergent, rinse it thoroughly and gently press out extra water and roll it lightly in a terry towel to absorb more of the moisture. Lay your project out to the correct measurements and let it dry naturally. If you want to speed up drying, aim a fan at the drying surface.

Can I wash the finished garments in the washing machine?

If you'd like to try machine washing your wool and wool-blend garments (not recommended), use cool water and a gentle cycle. After spinning, lay your garment flat to dry. And never, never put your knitted wool garment in the dryer

My country is charging import duties on the package.

International customers may be subject to import fees, taxes and duties according to your country’s import policies. These policies vary widely from country to country; please contact your local customs office for any specific information.

We are not responsible for international customs fees, taxes, import duties or any fees associated with collecting these charges. We are legally obligated to report all international purchases as “merchandise” with exact retail value as paid by the customer. This information and value is clearly noted on the required form that serves as the USPS shipping label and US export customs form. We legally cannot mark retail merchandise as “gifts” nor declare a value lower than paid for by the customer.

Will I be able to track my order?

All orders include tracking free of charge and the number will be included in your notification once the shipping label is printed. Tracking can have fits of updating and then nothing is given for days. This unfortunately, is all in the hands of the USPS.

If your order is international, once a package has left the U.S. it is in the hands of your country's national postal service. There is no extra way I can access tracking information from this point until the package arrives at its final destination. If you should have questions regarding tracking a package once it has left the U.S., please contact your local postal service.
