Undyed Yarn | Superwash Merino Single Ply sock yarn | Selene Sock

Selene Sock is a beautifully squishy, undyed fingering weight single ply superwash yarn. Make the most of its natural white colour or use it to try your hand at home dyeing with food colouring.

  • superwash (non-felting) 100% merino wool
  • 366 meters or 400 yards
  • single ply: dyes look more vibrant in this yarn base, and fibre has a very soft (a little more delicate) feel to it.

Selene, my single ply sock yarn base, is just so very soft. Single ply yarns are squishier and bouncier to the touch, making them the perfect fibres for warm beanies or a cosy cowl.

This undyed yarn has a lovely natural white colour. Knit or crochet it as is, or try your hand at home dyeing before tackling your project – food colouring is perfect because you won’t need any dedicated dyeing equipment.

This single ply sock yarn has a total of 400 yards or 366 meters for you to enjoy.

Selene Sock is one of my go-to yarns due to its well defined ply definition and how well it handles colour without felting. Find out more in our Fibre Bases and Info page.

  • Keep yarn in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the skein to avoid squishing it.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.

Your best crafting is my goal

I want you to absolutely love your knitting and crochet. I care whether that fab cardigan or pair of socks come to life. Your knitting and crochet needs to be everything you ever dreamed of and I want to help you get there. My yarns,  project bags and stitch markers are all created with your best crafting life in mind.

Hello there, I’m Eleanor and my goal in life is to be a part of your lovely hand crafting journey by dyeing the most fun yarns for your enjoyment.

I’ll do all of this without compromising on quality or my eco values: I source my wool from ethical, local suppliers and I hand dye my fibre using the most planet-friendly techniques at my disposal.
