This base is a special collection that will only be available for a short time.

This thin grey line colorway is produced in honor of those who serve in our correctional facilities and who keep our communities safe by helping to maintain order.

Rocket Sock Medium is a round, squishy, super-soft 4-ply 75/25 superwash merino/nylon  fingering weight yarn. It has a medium twist and is a little bit thicker than the standard Rocket Sock base. It is an excellent choice for socks, shawls, and sweaters. The stitch definition is amazing!

Because the non-toxic dye is fixed using a completely eco-friendly process, you don't have to fear that these amazing colors will fade or bleed under normal washing machine conditions. Colors blend into one another easily. Rocket Sock is the definitive choice in hand-painted yarns for your most stunning knitting or crochet projects. How beautiful would this colorway be as a shawl, a lace scarf, or a pair of socks?

All of our Rocket Sock yarn is dyed by hand in very small batches of 1, 2, or 3 hanks at a time.  Each hank is hand painted at Cedar Hill Farm and each is unique in patterning, even if multiple hanks are available in the same colorway.  The intensity of color may vary from skein to skein due to the natural uptake ability of the fiber.
