I think it’s gonna be a long, long time til’ touchdown brings me ‘round again to find I’m not the Sam they think I am at home - I’m a Rocketman! Rocketman will rocket your sock game into the stratosphere with in your face vibrant bright almost a rainbow colour. In my opinion there’s nothing finer than a sock that’s brighter than the sun! Neon flame red transitions into bright hot neon yellow and then bam! into space with galaxy purple. Perfect for the bold.
On one of our favourite sock bases - soft, strong, very little pilling & wears in quickly without wearing out. An excellent workhorse sock yarn that we keep coming back to, sock after sock.
This is a high twist yarn.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
