Lorna’s Laces – Shepherd Sock


We’re thrilled to introduce Lorna’s Laces to our range of hand-dyed yarns from around the world. Their Shepherd Sock yarn is a superb quality 4-ply yarn which would be a treat for feet, but equally beautiful in accessories or lacey garments. 

Dyed in small batches by artisan dyers in the USA, we love Lorna’s Laces range of clear, fresh colourways. From solids, to speckles, to variegated, we keep stock of a wide selection of different shades – you can browse a selection of photos here to give you an idea (please click on the photos to bring up the full image including shade name), and you can also view their shades at

Then just send us give us a call or send an enquiry using the ‘add to stash’ button below if you’d like to find out if we stock a certain shade, or you’d like help choosing one.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

Whilst we stock many shades of this yarn, we cannot guarantee to have every shade in at a time – if your chosen shade is unavailable we will either order it in or work with you to find a good substitute.
