The Farmer


A sock yarn in name only, The Farmer will delight makers in every project! A blend of highland wool, alpaca, and nylon, this versatile 6-ply yarn combines workhorse wearability, stitch definition, and drape. While this yarn maintains its woolly hand, it is also soft and machine washable. Plus, the Farmer is made responsibly, using eco-friendly processing and from farms certified for animal welfare. Use the Farmer for heavy socks, garments, accessories, and for gifts.
