Life in the Long Grass – Fine Sock


Fine Sock is a classic superwash merino nylon sock base full of bounce and twist. Great for socks, shawls, lightweight sweaters and because it’s machine washable it’s also good for baby and kids’ items too.

We’ve stocked Life in the Long Grass for many years because we love that season after season Caroline adds new colours to her range so the palette we offer is always changing.

Please note hand dyed colours can vary slightly within and between dye lots.  This is what makes each skein uniquely beautiful.  Please be sure to order enough yarn to complete your project to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins.  To ensure random colour distribution, work from two skeins at once, alternating every few rows. At YAK we try to ensure that our photos represent colours as accurately as possible, but please be aware that these can vary depending on your computer monitor settings.
