Item details

Premium Ready-to-Dye Sock Blank.
Ready to ship - brand new yarn. Please choose quantity desired in the drop-down box on the right.

This Sock Blank can be dyed or painted using any method you choose. You can knit directly from the blank or wind into a ball before knitting. The double strand blank can be used to create identical socks using a two-at-a-time knit method or wound in balls using two ball winders.

There is a 'right' end and a 'wrong' end where you will begin the unraveling. The 'right' end will unravel smoothly; the 'wrong' end has a lockstitch at both edges. My sock blanks are made with acrylic waste yarn on each end. The "right" end of the yarn blank (where you'll start unraveling) is orange and the bottom end is green.

There are a multitude of YouTube videos available for ideas on how to dye these blanks. You can dye vertically or horizontally, stripes or other shapes or designs. Write a message on the blank then see how it knits up! There are so many ways to achieve different effects.

Either Single strand or Double strand sock blank is available. It was made using my premium ready-to-dye sock yarn.

The single strand blank is approximately 9 inch by 54 inch.
The double strand blank is approximately 12 inch by 24 inch.

MCN
80% Merino / 10 % Cashmere / 10 % Nylon

This yarn is soft and strong at the same time. Soft squishy Superwash Merino spun with luxurious Cashmere and added strength of Nylon. Perfect for shawls, socks and baby items.

This skein weighs 100g and yields approximately 435 yards.

Note: This yarn contains protein fibers. Protein fibers should only be dyed with acid dyes, a process which requires acid added to allow the color to 'bite' the fiber and heat, to set the color. The acid is usually white distilled vinegar acid.

This yarn will only need soaking in a long warm bath. This will relax the knit stitches for dyeing. It is essential to give the yarn this bath so that the dye saturates the yarn effectively. It is specifically made for dying - no scouring is needed.

For best results, finished garments should be washed by hand in warm soapy water, and laid flat to dry. Due to the added Cashmere, it is not recommended that you machine wash your yarn - even though it does contain superwash wool

    First time working with a Sock Blank. Fabulous experience with the quality and workmanship of this product. I accidentally ordered the double strand (I do not do TAAT). But I dyed this weekend, which was so much fun, and wound one strand on ball winder and 2nd strand by hand. I was worried about tangles or problems but none. It was a great experience, one I would do again with this wonderful product.
