Ready-to-Ship Sock Tube
Colorway - "Galaxy" on Merino Silk Sock
70% Non-Superwash Merino/30% Silk
This is a 64 stitch tube intended to be made into socks by hand-knitting heels, toes & cuffs using either a contrast color of sock yarn or unraveling some of the tube to knit in the same yarn. Sock tubes are perfect for quick handmade gifts or if you want to cut out the time-consuming part of making stockinette socks for yourself!
Your yarn will be flanked by waste yarn on either end - this is to be discarded or repurposed for further waste yarn duties.
Interested in a sock tube in another colorway in stock? Any Fuzzzy Green Fibers fingering weight bases can be made into a tube (although Single Ply Merino is not recommended for socks). Simply add this listing to your cart with the yarn you'd like as a tube! We can make 60, 64, or 72 stitch tubes. This is available at any time!
Have suggestions for Ready-to-Ship colorways (or you just kinda want to see it knit up before you buy ;-) )? Send me an email or Instagram message, and I'll add that colorway in your suggested stitch count to the next sock tube update.
Your sock tubes will be perfect for afterthought toes, heels, and cuffs.

Each skein is hand-dyed with heavy metal-free acid dye. All my yarn is synthetic material-free (no superwash & no nylon/acrylic etc.) and dyed with less toxic materials.
I have done my very best to capture the color of the yarn as accurately as possible; however, colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
All of my yarn is hand-dyed in a smoke-free, cat-friendly home.
Care: wash gently in cool water with wool-safe soap & lay flat to dry.
