Celebrating sock yarn

I like to think we have a pretty good selection of sock wools at Three Bags Full,so here's a run down of what we have on offer...and don't forget, all these little beauties can be used for general 4 ply purposes as well as for socks.

Up first, we have the fantabulous Araucania Ranco. Hand-dyed and heathery, it comes in a multitude of semi-solids and multis, and it knits up a dream. This is just a small sample.

Then there's Austermann Step - beautifully soft and self-striping, infused with aloe vera and jojoba oil. Each colourway cleverly knits up into a slightly different pattern.

And now, a more traditional sock yarn: Cygnet Truly Wool Rich 4ply. Wonderful quality, great prices, a mix of pretty pinks and blues alongside more conservative school or office greys and sages. I've knitted with this one myself on small projects and am incubating a more long-term plan to knit myself a vintage close-fitting sweater in it. Lana Turner eat your heart out.

And finally, for your delectation and delight...Mini Mochi. Gorgeous colour changes reminiscent of fireworks, retro sweets and rainbows.

These are all available from the website:, except the Mini Mochi, altho' we'll also offer mail order on that one if you ring or email us.

Phew, hard sell over. Did I do okay?
