Sock yarn 4-ply
Sock yarn in 4-ply or 4-stranded thickness is a popular yarn for knitting socks, but also for other projects such as scarves, gloves, or sweaters. It is also referred to as "sock yarn" because it was specifically designed for making socks. The term "4-ply" or "4-stranded" refers to the number of individual threads the yarn consists of, typically four thin strands twisted together. This creates a durable yarn with sufficient stability for socks or other garments. This weight of sock yarn is suitable for a wide range of projects and is suitable for both beginners and experienced knitters. It offers a good balance between knitting speed and stitch definition. To knit socks or similar projects with 4-ply sock yarn, knitting needles typically ranging from 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm in size are used. However, this depends on individual knitting tension and the desired stitch pattern. It's advisable to make a gauge swatch to determine the appropriate needles for the specific project. 4-ply sock yarn is particularly suitable for knitting enthusiasts who enjoy making socks, as it is both robust and soft. The finished socks are comfortable to wear, providing warmth and comfort. This yarn is also suitable for other garments or accessories that require a finer texture while still ensuring good durability. Overall, 4-ply or 4-stranded sock yarn is versatile and a great choice for a variety of projects that require both durability and fineness.
