Full Moon Fibres Solar Sock Tube
Sock tubes are hand cranked by Jessica out of yarns that are hand dyed by both Allison and Jessica. These sock tubes are perfect to make socks from! Knit a cuff at the top add an afterthought heel and then divide your tube to make your toes and you have a sock in a day (or less)! These 50 gram tubes are great for a pair of socks. You can also skip the heel and finish your tube with cuffs and toes and you can have some tube socks!
Full Moon Fibres are currently working on a YouTube tutorial but they recommend these videos to help get you started!
- 80% Superwash Merino 20% Nylon (Solar Sock base)

- Tube is made from approximately 50 grams (approximately 182 yards)
- Tubes are approximately 21" long and 4" wide when laid flat gauge is approximately 32 stitches to 4".
- The acrylic yarn attached to each tube is waste yarn and it is holding your live stitches for you.
YARN AND PHOTO CLARITY
Due to the wonderful and interesting nature of hand dyed yarns, there is lots of room for variation within each colour way itself and for each base that the colour way is dyed on. Basically, even if it’s the same colour way- each skein is unique! This can be due to the differences in fiber content, plies, and whether the yarn is “super wash” treated.
Our yarn is dyed using acid dyes and should be hand washed/soaked in cold water using a wool wash (i.e. Soak, Eucalan, etc.) and laid flat to dry. Minor color bleeding may happen with some colour ways during their first soak. This is normal and even happens with commercially dyed yarns. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
TWO + SKEIN PROJECTS
As mentioned above, each skein of hand dyed yarn tends to be a bit different. If you are starting a project that requires more than one skein, in the same colour way, we recommend alternating skeins as you knit or crochet.
