Red Earth – Romney Pure Sock (pre-order for Gro Socks)


As seen on the Fibertales podcast for the Gro socks.

Welcome back, the Romney Pure Sock! My new sock yarn from 2020 is now happily back on the shelves. Previously spun from fleeces in the Mendips, I’m now able to work with an eco farm just moments from the spinning mill in East Sussex. The fleece is long and strong making it the perfect choice for garments that need a little extra durability. Worsted spun, with a slightly higher tension for added strength.

The Romney pure sock has been spun with versatility in mind. The sheep have a soft characteristic making it a great yarn for other knitted accessories and garments.

Inspired by rusty red earth that’s revealed when I pull back to plant my spring veg seedlings.
