We have a one-two punch of sock goodness this week. Not only is the first of our summer workshop series happening this Saturday with a focus solely on socks, but a brand-new shipment of Wollmeise Pure has arrived from Germany as well!
Like its cousin, Wollmeise Twin, the Pure base features a tight twist, brilliant colors and crazy good yardage. Its pure superwash merino content means that your socks will be oh so comfy, but the tight twist means that it will wear like iron. Whether you are drawn to the siren call of fun colorwork socks, intricate cables or simpler textured patterns, your socks are sure to shine in Pure.
- 574 yards (525 meters)
- 100% superwash merino
- 32 stitches to 4” on a US 0-1.5 (2-2.5 mm) needle

If you feel like you sock knitting skills aren’t quite up to snuff or are just interested in expanding your sock skillset, check out our Sock Knitting Workshop this Saturday, June 3rd from 1-5pm with Holly. This workshop covers techniques for starting and finishing both top-down and toe-up socks, as well a variety of heels and how to substitute them into your favorite patterns. Spots are filling quickly, so be sure to sign up online or over the phone to secure your spot.
For those of you ready give into the world of sock knitting, there are still a handful of spots left in both the Beginner Socks from the Toe Up and Beginner Socks from the Top Down starting over the next few weeks.
And if all of that hasn’t yet convinced you that socks are awesome, Wollmeise Pure does work up beautifully into garments, accessories and baby items.
