Hey Mama Wolf Sockyarn #04 is the 'happiest' of yarns, handdyed by Jule Kebelmann using mostly plant material which is organically grown or which she has gathered in the Berlin-Brandenburg wilderness herself.

Sockyarn #04 is a sturdy yet soft sockyarn with a crisp stitch definition making it the perfect choice for colourwork and textured stitches. This yarn is perfect for socks, light sweaters, cardigans and all kinds of accessories, even next to skin wear.

Sockyarn #04 is a blend of Merino and Corriedale, but what's more is that unlike a lot of similar sock weight yarns the Sockyarn #04 is not strengthened with nylon but with ramie! Ramie is one of the strongest natural fibres and it exhibits even greater strength when wet. Ramie fibre is known especially for its ability to hold shape, reduce wrinkling, and introduce a silky lustre to the fabric appearance. In other words - a completely natural sock yarn - and what can be better than that?

Due to dyeing with plant dyes there is a natural variation within hanks of the same dye lot. To maintain an even appearance in larger projects we suggest to alternate skeins while knitting.
Please note that there is a difference in price between some shades reflecting the cost and labour intesitivity behind using the different dyes.
