Pleiades Sock

Pleiades Series

Pleiades is back as Pleiades Eco, and even better than before with an all new, more environmentally friendly fibre content, but just as soft, and virtually indistinguishable from the old version so you can use it interchangeably with Pleiades Original.


Sweetly soft and durable socks! Pleiades wool free sock yarn is the ideal yarn for not only socks, but shawls accessories and garments too. Because of the elastic content, this yarn holds it's shape wonderfully, so its a great yarn if you're not used to using yarns that drape, like 100% bamboo and Tencel. This yarn blooms with washing, meaning it softens, and fills in gaps, so it gets softer, and hides stitch imperfections. An excellent choice for colourworking/intarsia.
