Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 269 – Liberty Wool Socks

Now that Thanksgiving has passed and the holidays are barreling down on us, the needles are busy. If you need a fast gift, these socks fit the bill. Knit with Liberty Wool, they are easy and quick. They’ll keep feet warm and cheer up a winter night with their bright colors. Go crazy with your color selection and mix up the stripes in the second sock just to be playful. Or use Liberty Wool Print and a coordinating solid color for the toe, heel and ribbing for a different look. The possibilities are endless. It’s a gift that will be appreciated!

The Yarn

Liberty Wool
100% Washable Wool

Liberty Wool is a super-soft, washable wool available in solid and printed colors. This yarn's balanced twist will make all stitch combinations pop. With all the great qualities of wool and the ease of machine washability, Liberty Wool knits at a gauge that suits many designs and is ideal for children's pieces as well as those for adults.

The Liberty Wool Pattern Booklets


Liberty Wool is a very special yarn indeed. It occupies a completely unique spot in the Classic Elite family of yarns. Machine washability makes it a perfect choice for babies and kids, while the unique color combinations of the prints are just right for accessories to add a little pop of color. Liberty Wool is also available in a large palette of solid shades (great if you want to control the stripes yourself, like Andi did with this week's socks).
