Sock Yarns

Our line of sock yarns consists of three different weights of our long-time favorite yarn, Väinämöinen.


These sock yarns are all spun from the same high-quality blend of wool and nylon fibers. The only difference is in plying. 

Our sock yarns are made in Germany.

All sock yarns have been tested for length, and one skein will be enough for a pair of adult size socks (show size EU 40).

Väinämöinen sock yarns can be washed in the gentle cycle in the machine, but the colors may fade over time. These yarns will not felt.
