Raggi Yarn is the father of all sock yarns, and Jarbo Garn’s biggest pride. The wonderful composition of superwash wool and polyamide makes the yarn durable, and therefore perfect for socks.  Raggi Yarn is also lovely worked in everything from sweaters and hats to mittens and scarves. The yarn works as good for knitting as for crocheting.  This Aran weight yarn is perfect for making boot socks.  Because of the classic styling of the Raggi  it is great for first time sock knitters. The easy machine wash-ability of the yarn gives the user easy care.

Features patterns:  Easy Peasy Socks for First-Timers (knit) by Stacey Trock are a great way to learn how to knit socks.  In fact, the pattern is especially designed with the first-time sock knitter in mind.  Worsted weight socks are warm and work up quickly.  You will need size 5 double-pointed needles and 1 skein of Jarbo Raggi for an "average" foot...2 skeins if your foot is a little bigger.   


Stretchy Crochet Socks (crochet) by Lisa Fulcher uses the sideways technique to help these socks to be stretchy like knitted ones.  You will need a size L crochet hook and 2 skeind of Raggi.


We will give you one of these patterns for free with purchase of a skein or more of Jarbo Raggi.  Please let us know in the notes section of your cart which pattern you would like to receive.
