Socks that Rock come in three different weights: Fingering, Sport, and light Worsted. 

Fingering.  This is the fingering-weight version of Blue Moon's signature sock yarn. A 3-ply, tightly plied, high grade superwash merino. STR has a lot of energy what we like to refer to as boing factor. The 3-plies make it a well rounded yarn, which is great for stitch definition. We call it lightweight instead of fingering-weight because of the elasticity, which makes it not a true fingering-weight, close though. This yarn truly rocks!

Content: 100% Superwash Merino
Weight: 5.15 oz / 146 g
Length: 405 yds / 370m
Gauge: 8-10 stitches per inch (2.5 cm) on US size 1 (2.25mm) needles

Medium Weight.  This is the sport-weight version of Blue Moon's signature sock yarn. A 3-ply, tightly plied, high grade superwash merino. STR has a lot of energy, what we like to refer to as boing factor. The 3-plies make it a very well rounded yarn, which is great for stitch definition. This also is not a true sport-weight because of the energy. A rockin’ sock yarn!!

Content: 100% Superwash Merino
Weight: 6oz / 170g
Length: 405yds / 370m
Gauge: 7-8 stitches per inch (2.5 cm) on US size 2-3 (2.75mm-3.25 mm) needles

Heavyweight.  This is a light worsted-weight version of Blue Moon's signature sock yarn. This weight is a bit different from the other two weights because it is a 4-ply and the twist while tight, does not seem so because of the 4 plies. This yarn is not only used for socks but also garment knitting. A great yarn for baby knitting. Rock your socks and your souls!
