    When a natural dyer spends more than two years testing and trialling different custom spins to arrive at the perfect plastic-free, non-superwash sock yarn, you know it's going to be good!

    This is the story of Ovis, woollentwine's custom-spun 50% Cheviot, 50% Jacobs sock yarn. It's good - so, so good. The fiber composition and high twist ensure that your socks are going to last a really long time, absolutely no nylon needed.

    Plus: The undyed shades ecru and grey provide the perfect backdrop for woollentwine's fabulous natural dyeing skills. Go for one of her signature muted shades, or venture out into the world with bright poppy-red socks!

    If you are looking for pattern inspiration, Jule has put together a whole pattern bundle on Ravelry with suitable designs. Ovis also works wonderfully with woollentwine's Cloud, her cruelty-free silk mohair yarn.
