Regia 8-ply Marl Sock Yarn

This is the best of the best for boot socks! This is a classic sock yarn composition, 75% wool, 25% nylon that is machine washable and dryable, stable and hard-wearing. There are three beautiful marled colorways, all of them suitable for women or men, that give a classic look to your boot socks. But oh! The difference for your feet when hiking or working in boots is amazing!

Of course you can use this for other garments too, just like other sock yarn, but much faster to knit. The statistics below are what is printed on the ball band, but that is really based on standard 8-ply yarn. For tips for boot socks, see the features tab below.

75% superwash wool, 25% nylon
150g = about 328 yards (300m)
Machine wash medium or low, machine dry low--will not felt
Gauge for medium weight fabric is 20 st and 28 rows on US 6-8 needles (See the features tab for sock knitting.)
One ball will make a standard pair of ladies socks (up to size 9 shoe, with a 7" cuff above the ankle). Larger sizes including men's or longer cuff will require more than 1 ball.

Boot Socks:
For hard wearing boot socks, we would recommend using a US 3-5 needle, as small as you can manage it, for at least the toes and heels. It's ok to use several different needle sizes in a sock to make the fabric feel just the way you want! You may also want to string along extra fuzzy nylon in the toes and heels.
Don't be afraid to customize socks--the wearer will LOVE you for it.
