Sock Ruler

Slip this ruler right into your sock while it is still on the needles to easily gauge when to start the toe (or the gusset/heel if you are knitting toe-up socks). With inches, centimeters, US Men/Women, and Euro shoe sizes etched right on, you'll always get a perfect fit! 

This handy ruler can be used in a few different ways. The length of a foot can be measured by standing on it. It works well to do this against a wall so the part of the heel that sticks out the most is in line with the edge of the sock ruler. Adult socks typically have 10% negative ease, so depending on how much negative ease you like in your sock you can either use the corresponding shoe size or add in or subtract the percentage of ease you'd like. (Our sock size mini tool has the math for 10% negative ease worked out so they work great together).

Once you're knitting your socks you can use the inch/cm ruler to measure the height of your cuff for either toe up or top down socks. You can stick the ruler into top down socks, with the zero edge up against the heel of the sock, to measure what shoe size or inch/cm measurement you're approaching in your knitting. If you're knitting toe up socks you can hold the sock up against the ruler to measure the shoe size or inch/cm measurement.

Adult socks typically have 10% negative ease and measure approximately 1/2" or 1.3 cm shorter than the foot length and 1" or 2.5 cm smaller than the leg or foot circumference. This information is etched onto the sock ruler as a reminder.

As with other hand dyed yarns, we would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.

We care deeply about the environment and we're aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so we make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.

We try to ensure all colours look true on our monitor but they can vary substantially. If you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
