Striking hand-dyed colorways, unbelievable softness, superb stitch definition and easy-to-care-for machine washability. Shepherd Sock is truly the ultimate sock yarn! This versatile superwash wool has just a touch of nylon for added durability and can be used for everything from socks and shawls to lacy tops and lightweight cardigans. Each 100g hank is enough to make one pair of adult size socks with a generous 430-435 yards. No matter your tastes and preferences in colors, with over 175 solid and variegated hues to choose from (not to mention Limited Edition colors) there really is a color for everyone!

Please note that our stock is slowly switching over to larger hanks of Shepherd Sock. If you are looking for 50g hanks, we still have some left in stock and you can check them out here!

Limited Edition Colors: Available the 1st of each month... when they sell out, they sell out!

If you are interested, take a look at all of the past Limited Edition colors.

Lorna's Laces has agreed to contribute a minimum of 5% of their gross profits from the sale of their Stitch Red product ('12 June - Stitch Red) to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in support of The Heart Truth® and women's heart health education and research.
