Natural & Rustic

Mondim is a very unique sock yarn as it does not contain any nylon nor has it been superwash treated. Made of sturdy Portuguese fine wool Mondim is hardwearing and has a beautifully round and rustic handle. The rich palette includes speckled and self striping colourways that are easy to mix and match to create striking stranded pieces. It was named after a Portuguese village once famous for its thriving sock knitting industry.

Like all Retrosaria yarns Mondim has not been bleached, with wool sourced from free range sheep that are museling free. To ensure socks made from Mondim are as durable as those made with synthetic fibres, Rosa Pomar advises reinforcing the heel and toe by holding Mondim together with a darning yarn.

Sock Inspiration

Mondim doesn’t have to be used for socks! The speckled colourways are a really easy way to add some fun into a plain stockinette jumper, scarf, hat etc.
