Attention Sockaholics! Prepare to get excited!

Turtlepurl Self Striping Sock Yarn is Back!


There are currently 21 seriously fun colour patterns to choose from in this yarn, but they won’t last long so come in soon to get your first pick.
What’s so great about this yarn? – you might ask. Firstly, it is made in Canada, hand dyed yarn, which is always special.  Secondly, the yarn is cleverly dyed so that it will knit into stripe patterns with no extra effort from the knitter.  In addition the skeins are bundles into couplets, dyed to match each other so that sock knitters can match up the stripes in their socks.


These socks were knit by Ellen in the Turtlepurl colour called Rock, Paper, Scissor, Lizard, Spock! Ellen’s socks are so dreamily soft because they are a special blend of sock yarn called Softshell Turtle Toes composed of 70% Superwash Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon. This super soft sock yarn makes for very happy feet.  We have a few colours in this decadent blend.  Colours like:


Rock, Paper, Scissor, Lizard, Spock


Origins of Purple


Miss K’s Big Day


Gothic Plum


Old Glory

Most of the Turtlepurl sock yarn in the shop is the hard wearing Striped Turtletoes yarn which is a blend of superwash merino and nylon. Many old and friendly colours are making a reappearance and a few new ones too!  Colours like:


I just couldn’t resist the name of this one! Who doesn’t want super hero socks?


Snow White
All the colours of this leading ladies dress! These would make such sweet socks! Non?

Turtlepurl Striped Turtletoes would be terrific yarn to use an After Thought Heel Sock Pattern with.  That way the delightful stripes will not be interrupted by the heel knitting.  Check out the blog post for things to knit for Christmas for links to two different after thought heel patterns.  One in toe-up and the other is top-down!

Craftily yours
