This gorgeous yarn is hand-dyed in the UK by Brighton based indie dyer The Uncommon Thread.  We love using Tough Sock for any projects 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.

The Dartmoor colourway is featured in our popular Musselburgh hat pattern.



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 on larger projects we recommend alternating between two skeins.
