Leo & Roxy Yarn Co. Natural Sock
Welcome to Leo & Roxy's new base, Natural Sock, an untreated Merino and nylon mix with lots of bounce and memory making it great for sweaters. The new base is also incredibly soft, especially when paired with their Mohair/Silk.
This fingering weight, 100% untreated, non-superwash wool, takes the dye in a softer, more subtle way. Leo & Roxy is excited to bring you this warm and soft wool that provides just a bit of luxury!

More About Leo & Roxy Yarn Co.
Leo & Roxy Yarn Co. is the pride and passion of a couple of Canadian indie-dyers.
First, to clear things up, we’re not Leo or Roxy – they’re just our ‘animal inspiration’.
LEO is a rambunctious, Rambouillet and sibling of ‘Socks’ and ‘Gansey’ at the Gardner homestead. While a bit young yet, all will be donating their yearly shearings for an up-and-coming farm to needle product line of custom harvested, spun, and dyed yarn provided direct from our farm Baaaaaad Boys lol -stay tuned.
As for ROXY, she’s our colour mascot – a Green Cheek Conure with some serious sass – who’s now growing into her colours and inspiring our need to be colourfully creative, and have fun doing so (and occasionally bite but we’re working on that 😉).
We hope you’ll love our yarn as much as we love creating it.
