Handspun Merino Mulberry

Here's another pair knit up from Eva's handspun sock yarn - this time a 3 ply Merino Mulberry Silk blend, 381.5m/98g.

I knit this pair in a size Small Plus  (= ~ Ladies 8-9 shoe) to a mid-calf length.

I used the 72 cylinder and 36 ribber on the Verdun 47, with a 1 x 1 cuff, then a 5 x 1 rib on the leg and instep.

The silk gives a very good strength to this yarn but I reinforced the heels and toes with wooly nylon for good measure.

I loves these colours...make me think of cinnamon (yum yum).


  1. You always make my yarn look at its best. Thanks Doug.
