The Design

"Nice around the house, terrific for travel."

Inspired by a pair of socks entered in our ‘Koigu & You’ customer show years ago, we designed these little one-skein slipper socks for the 2009 LYS Tour. They make great gifts as they’re easy to to fit and don’t take a lot of yarn. They’re nice for around the house. And terrific for travel. The Churchmice love to wear them with clogs!

We love the complexity and painterly repeats of color that Koigu brings to their skeins of KPPPM—and how they show up in our Turkish Bed Socks! This fingering-weight merino yarn has just the right amount of twist—soft enough for comfort and firm enough for socks!

Pick up the pattern above, and choose your shade. One skein is all you need. Koigu sends their hand-dyed yarns to us in small batches—and each is an individual work of art! This means that occasionally dye lots may vary, and look a little different from our image. If you have any questions about one of these beautiful skeins, we're happy to help!
