Andrea Mowry's Bear Paw Socks

Bear Paw Socks by Andrea Mowry,
Farmers Daughter Bear Paw Sock, colors Ranch Romance, Sunstone

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.


  • 1 skein each of two different colors Farmers Daughter Bear Paw Sock, photo in Ranch Romance & Sunstone
  • Size US 4 double point needles (or preferred method of small circumference knitting)

All that is left is finding the marl you love.


Happy Knitting!
