House Sock is a very robust yarn. You might find that it knits up a bit more plush than other sock yarns.
For socks, aim for a gauge of 7.5 to 8 stitches per inch, which is usually achieved with a needle size of 2.25mm to US size 2 (2.75mm).
House Sock is composed of 90% Targhee wool. Targhee is one of the newer sheep breeds and its wool is three-quarters fine wool (like merino) and one-quarter long wool, making it a wonderful combination of soft and strong. You can read more about the Targhee sheep's fascinating history here.
Every skein has a story, and I dream up the colors for my yarn here in San Francisco. Your skein is then dyed by me, in my small San Francisco studio, or by my dye partner in Maine.
I use a variety of creative inspirations for my colors, from the colors of my beloved San Francisco, to literature, to Pantone inspirations. My signature style is "watercolor speckles," where the yarn is created as a low-contrast variegate, with soft and random swirls of color overlaid with the tiniest and loveliest speckles of strong, pure color.
Yarn is dyed in small batches, with color applied by hand and using professional acid dyes.
Care: We recommend that you hand wash our yarns in cold or lukewarm water and lay your knitted item flat to dry. While superwash yarns are treated so that they can be machine washed, taking care to wash gently and air dry will greatly prolong the life of your handknit item.
Turkish Delight yarn that I ordered is dyed a beautiful color of lite blue with purple. Little Skein yarn is so very soft, great to knit with, and the finished product is the best socks. Casting on tomorrow night another pair of great socks thanks to Anne and her crew!
My package arrived quickly and was nicely wrapped. I immediately wound and started knitting a pair of socks with the House sock yarn, a Targhee blend. I am loving it. It is soft and springy, and the "I Left my Heart in San Francisco" color is perfect! Targhee is my new favorite sock yarn blend!! I'll be back for more!! :)
I'm loving working with Turkish Delight. I'm making a pair of socks and the colorway is sooooo beautiful. It brings me back to childhood moments. I wish I had bought more.
This yarn arrived safe and sound. It is absolutely beautiful and it will be the next pair of socks on my needles. It is ready to go and in a project bag. I can’t wait.
I used to pass a pig farm on my way to work years ago. This yarn is just the right color of new born piglets. But I know this one will stay clean!
