A perfect blend of warmth and strength to make a hardwearing sock yarn that can stand up to your affection and abuse. Tough Love Sock is our best-selling yarn and knits up beautifully into fine-gauge sweaters, small shawls, as well as socks! Spun from 80% superwash and super soft merino and 20% nylon, this 3-ply yarn is so versatile, knit it firmly for hard wearing socks, knit it loosely for drapey shawls or knit it doubled for a great worsted weight substitute.

Suggested gauge for sock knitting: US 0-1 (2-2.25mm) | 8 sts/1"

Feels like Cashmere!

I am completely speechless over how supremely soft & delicious this year is post wet-blocking!
It was a joy to knit with - soft, springy & forgiving; but totally MAGICAL once washed/blocked.
I test knit a shawl using a Party of 5 in shades of purple with a skein of Amber Ale Tough Love sock. I was in a hurry so I didn't take the time to pre-wash the darker purples. I held my breath when I dunked it into the wash, and was thrilled to discover that there was absolutely no bleeding from the darker colours.
Am I gushing? Absolutely! I LOVE this yarn!

I bought sock, DK, and worsted yarn for several projects and I absolutely love SG yarn. All the colours are gorgeous and I love that it’s a local business!
