Basic Socks Project - Ultra Alpaca Fine Version

Basic Socks Project - Ultra Alpaca Fine Version

"Luxurious and durable."

Berroco’s Ultra Alpaca Fine is perfect for our fingering-weight Basic Sock pattern. Its luxurious blend of wool and alpaca makes for super-comfy socks, and the addition of nylon means they’ll be durable and machine washable (in cool water).

One generous skein is enough for most all women’s and men’s sizes. And with 14 rich colors to choose from, it won’t be hard to find the perfect shade.

Karen used color 1207 Salt and Pepper to make a man’s size large fully ribbed sock and charmingly tipped the toes in color 1281 Redwood Mix. One skein of contrast color will tip the toes of up to 20 pairs! Or you can use the left over contrast color to make a pair of Turkish Bed Socks after tipping the first pair of toes.

You can pick up the pattern and all the fabulous colors below (you'll need 1 skein for 1 pair of socks in most all women’s and men’s sizes), or go to Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine for more information about the yarn.
