Stroll Hand Painted Sock Yarn

$9.89 - $10.99 100g / hank  Original Price: $10.99

We could not resist, we had to include Hand Painted yarns in our Stroll fingering weight collection. This yarn is so fun and the colors will take you back to some great childhood memories.

A super-soft, affordable, washable treat for your feet. Warm, cushy and versatile, this yarn is wonderful to have in your stash when sock inspiration strikes. Ideal for gift socks since the recipient does not need to worry about special care instructions.

Also available as natural undyed yarn so you can create your own colorways.

Note: For best machine wash results, turn the socks inside out and wash in cold water on a delicate cycle.

“The new Knit Picks handpainted sock yarn, Stroll Hand Painted, looks awesome! I’m so happy that Knit Picks came out with a machine washable handpainted sock yarn. What a pleasant surprise…The colorways of the new yarn are really, really cool!”  Jmf Knits

This yarn is soft and the colours are beautiful. It doesn't itch, and it knits up beautifully. My only issue is that the pictures really don't do the colours of the yarn justice. I was waffling between Coffee Shop and Make Believe. They both have similar colours. I ended up buying Coffee Shop, but in retrospect probably should have ordered Make Believe. Still, the end product turned out beautifully, so I can't complain.

This yarn is very soft and beautiful! For someone who normally finds even high quality wool itchy at times, this yarn passes my sensitivity test! The ONLY drawback I can see from working with this yarn is that it tends to split sometimes. (I was working on size 1 DPNS (2.25mm))

This is my new favorite sock yarn! Knits up beautifully and is very soft to the touch. Much softer than what I have been buying from the LKS for twice the price. Also love that it is superwash. I've bought the tonal and it is just as nice with more subtle color variation. Please keep bringing us this wonderful yarn!

I think this yarn is wonderful. I will order more. Make Believe is my favorite. I love Knitpicks; I think that their company is the greatest. Keep it up Knitpicks.

I love all of the Stroll yarns and have never had a problem with knots, snarls, etc. I especially love the Make Believe colorway and have knit quite a few pairs of socks out of it because everybody has asked for it. Though I have to say I really wish you'd bring back the Imagination Hand Paints. I never got a chance to order a few of those that looked so beautiful. I'd love some more of the Mermaid color and the Looking Glass - I bought enough Wicked Witch to make a shawl. Please bring it back!

This stuff is delightful! Makes fine partial-row stripes on adult-sized socks. Nice and soft. Really beautiful stitch (mini-cable) definition on size 1 bamboo needles! This is great gift-sock yarn, given the very low price. Bought some of the "tonal" colorations, also. Imagine they'll work up equally well.

This yarn rocks! Re-knitted the first inch of patterned knitting several times, trying different stitches, and the yarn held its shape beautifully despite three or for complete "frog-outs." The coloration comes out in semi-stripes, with no color pooling. And the stitch definition on size 1 needles is lovely. Plus, it feels soft to the touch. This is a crazy excellent deal! :-) Hope it washes as well as it knits.

Beautiful yarn. A pleasurable experience to knit with. Unfortunately for me, it is on backorder right now. Darn! Love, and I mean, love "cartoon"; and "watermelon." Am looking forward to trying the other colors.

My new favorite sock yarn, I love how unique the coffee shop colorway is.

I absolutely love this yarn. It is easy to work with and the finished product is so soft. I made a dreambird shawl out of it and the drape was beautiful and the colors were vibrant and full of life.

Make Believe turned up, and has far more pink and turquoise in it than the photo would have you believe. I thought the greens and purples would have been perfect for a Hulk-themed project, but the colors ended up being all wrong. Gave it away as a xmas gift.

Watermelon is more a case of Lily Pulitzer Goes Goth! Way too much black and not enough red, but the feel is nice.
