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"

I Love Tough Love sock.

I knit a heckuva lot of socks using various yarns, and this is now my favourite.
Slides beautifully along the needles, and I stop to admire the work frequently.
Love the slight variation in colours, it produces beautiful fabric. Thanks you.

Robyn Gibbons
Love this yarn!

It is super soft, little to no lint comes off of it over years of wear, and strong enough for socks that wear for years too. Great go to yarn for softness and durability.

Karl Smith
Slow, slow, slow!

The yarn is beautiful but the delivery was very slow - almost three weeks.
