Franklin is a light fingering yarn that is perfect for socks! The three fine plies are strong enough to make wonderfully light socks at a very tight gauge, which is great for a pair of warm-weather socks. The generous yardage in the striping skein allows for socks with lots of intricate texture or socks for larger feet. Crochet socks also work very nicely with this yarn.

The Franklin base is available as Evolution cupcakes, Self-Striping and as Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.
