SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock Yarn - Tourmaline Reviews

SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock Yarn - Tourmaline
Tourmaline shown $26.00

Sweet Georgia yarns are hand-dyed in small batches, so every hank is just a teeny bit different! We do our best to visually match hanks for each order and will contact you via email if one or more hanks differ noticeably from the others. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in coloring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch.

Tough Love Sock is a perfect blend of color, warmth and strength to make an exquisite hardwearing sock yarn that can stand up to your affection and abuse.

Overall Tough Love Sock Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 27 reviews)

Great, soft yarn 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This is a great yarn--soft, strong. My one caveat is that the darker shades have more variation in color--not completely dyed through, so you will have some lighter patches.

great for socks 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Beautiful, colors flow together quick repeats and no pooling. Not a soft feel, but a strong yarn.

Great Sock Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The yarn makes great socks. The colors of my skein don't have the variety of colors that the picture shows. I just chalk that up to the variations in the dye process and computer monitors.

Soft 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This yarn is very soft, and I really enjoyed knitting with it. The reason I didn't give five stars is because there was 3 knots in one of the skeins that I got.

What can I say? 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I haven't tried this base before, and these colors are so ME! I am hoping that I find the perfect sock pattern to use this.
