Thede is a high quality fingering weight yarn hand-painted by master dyer Rhichard Devrieze in Ontario, Canada. This yarn is ideal for making brightly coloured socks.
"Another merino ram that came to us as a lamb and, as he grew, we'd often wonder if his mother had a 'liaison' with a ram of another breed, so it seemed fitting that our sock yarn should be so named, being not quite all merino"
A simple and fun sock pattern is Spencer by Katie Noseworthy. Garter stitch panels in different thicknesses add interest to the sock, but doesn't take away from the bright colours of Thede.
