Tough Sock is a superwash sock weight yarn from The Uncommon Thread. Tougher than Ellen Ripley but still lovely and soft, this yarn is suitable for any item that will get lots of wear. It can be used for not only socks, but baby items, garments, hats and can be worn next to the skin.

Although we recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.

Each skein is unique. For consistent results, alternate between two skeins.
