Farmers Daughter Bear Paw Sock has just arrived at Wool & Co.!
This simply gorgeous, fingering weight sock yarn has a tight twist for exceptional stitch definition. Each skein of Bear Paw Sock is spun with a blend of superwash Merino wool, (non-superwash) yak & nylon for strength. The addition of yak fiber to this blend gives the yarn a beautiful luminosity & deep, complex undertone.
Ideal for socks, though this yarn is also lovely knit into sweaters, cardigans & accessories. The durability & warmth works well for fingerless mitts.
The Bear Paw Socks by fab designer Andrea Mowry are the perfect project to experience this yarn.
These super squishy socks knit to a DK weight gauge when you hold 2 strands of fingering weight yarn together to create your own marled fabric!
The socks feature some fun, new techniques such as a Fleegle Heel & Turkish Cast-on. They are knit toe-up on a size US 4 needle, which is a fun change for socks.
