Coop Knits Socks Yeah! 4ply
Rachel Coopey, aka CoopKnits, is one of knitting's best-loved sock designers, so you just know her own sock yarn is going to be something special. And Rachel's Socks Yeah! 4ply covers all the sock yarn bases (pun-intended); soft on your toes, yet hard-wearing on your heels, spun with a confidently firm twist for great stitch definition, machine washable, and available in a gorgeous palette that ranges from subtle neutrals to in-your-face neons.
Wave goodbye to second sock syndrome by adding in a contrast cuff or toe - Sock Yeah's 50g skeins allow you to mix up your colours without breaking the bank.
A standard pair of socks requires 2 x 50g skeins of Socks Yeah! 4ply.
