For the next few days I will be focusing on showcasing in detail the different options within the 2016 Yarn and Fiber Club. Some people have said they are having a hard time choosing, and I’d hate for that to keep people from joining up.
This post will be all about the most common option – regular sock yarn.
There are six base yarns included in membership. Each yarn will be dyed twice. Our five classic bases plus a new additional base that has never before been offered.
Sugar Maple Sock is our most popular base. It’s a soft and sturdy work horse fingering weight yarn that takes dye in rich, matte color. It is made of 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon. Yardage is approximately 425 yards per skein.
Silver Maple Sock is as soft as it is durable. Comprised of 60% superwash merino, 30% bamboo and 10% nylon, it is softer and shinier than its Sugar Maple sister. This yarn is as suitable for shawls as it is for socks. 425 yards per skein.
Mountain Maple Sock is a heavy fingering weight. At 325 yards per skein, it is thick and smooshy while still being plenty of yardage for socks. Its 100% superwash BFL content means it has tremendous strength and a hint of sheen.
Red Maple Sock is a 50/50 blend of superwash merino and tencel (a plant fiber). It is the shiniest and drapiest of all the bases. At 415 yards per skein, there’s plenty for a shawlette or hat and mitts set. You can create socks with it, but the legs will not stand up as with the other bases.
White Maple Sock is 100% American and is 100% superwash merino. It has a tight ply twist to add durability and takes color the best of all the bases. It is a ton of fun to knit. 415 yards per skein.
Mystery Sock This base is so new it doesn’t yet have a name. It’s a 100% American yarn made with 90% superwash targhee wool and 10% nylon. At 460 yards per skein, this is a light fingering weight yarn. Perfect for those slightly larger projects you’ve been wanting to knit.
The regular sock club option is our most popular for a reason. If you love knitting socks, shawls, hats, mitts, and other smaller projects, this yarn is fun and quick-knitting. If you’re new to HH, this is a terrific introduction to what we do. And at only $28-$37 a month including shipping, it won’t break your budget! Go to the club page to see how to sign up.
