8 Ply Supreme Sock Has Arrived!

New Yarn Base

We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have decided to stock a new yarn base.

This base is the 8 Ply Supreme Sock or DK version of my super popular 4 ply Supreme Sock and will be available first to my lovely locals who find me at The Tasmanian Craft Fair November 4-7 Venue 5

For those like me who are hooked on knitting 8 ply thick and squishy socks this yarn is just the best! Super quick to knit up which means you can get a pair done in no time at all.

This plump round yarn has good twist and is perfect for heavier weight or harder wearing knits like socks, every day jumpers jumpers and beanies etc. 

With the same 85% Australian Merino and 15% nylon this base is a great all rounder and suitable for most knitting projects. 

Yarn Details:

  • 225 mt /100g hank
  • 85% Australian Merino + 15% Nylon
  • Superwash Merino
  • Rich vibrant colours hand dyed using Australian made dye.


We have decided to show these scrumptious yarns off first at the Tasmanian Craft Fair at Deloraine from the 4th - 7th November 2022. This is where you can see the colours and feel how super squishy this yarn is.

There are also mini skeins to match these versatile great all rounder yarns.

The weekend after this I will have them online again for The Big Wool Show which is on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th November 2022 

For those of you who are new to sock knitting I have a couple of links to my favourite patterns for you to try.

Our favorite is from the Crazy Sock Lady on Ravelry I love Kay's 8 ply Vanilla Sock pattern and now know it by heart.... Well almost, I sometimes have to check the heal when I get to it! I knit this pattern using one skein of my 8 ply Supreme Sock yarn and usually do the toes and heals with a contrasting mini skein

The very best thing about Kay is she has a YouTube channel with some fabulous tips and tricks to get the job done.
