Yarn Corner: Danubio

Katia's New Sock Yarn

For this week’s Yarn Corner we have Katia's popular new sock line Danubio. Made of a Superwash Wool and Polyamide mix, these self-striping socks are as soft as they are sturdy. Each 100g ball makes a whole pair of socks. At £8.99 per ball, and with a 15% In the Wool discount, you can enjoy colourful socks of the highest quality for a value price.

Danubio brings striking colour palettes to your feet, with 6 different shade mixes inspired by beautiful scenes from around the world. This range has been really popular in store so far, largely because of these attractive colourways. You can create truly unique handmade socks without having to worry about constant colour changes.

Babes in the Wool stocks the whole range and we have plenty of each colour in stock. If you’ve been thinking about knitting or crocheting your first pair of socks, I can’t recommend Danubio enough. Struggling to get started? Katia has uploaded quite a few sock knitting tutorials to their YouTube channel. These use Katia’s United Sock Yarn, which is the same weight as Danubio and can be used interchangeably to create complex sock designs. Check out their video playlist for all kinds of sock knitting techniques!

Here’s a quick tutorial that shows a magic cast-on technique to start perfect toe-up socks on circular needles:

Danubio is the perfect yarn for sock lovers who want an intricate pair without a lot of hassle. Just one ball is needed to make a beautiful multi-coloured pair of self-patterning socks. It’s also a great yarn choice for shawls and scarves, with these colourways providing a lovely patterning effect no matter how it is knitted or crocheted up.
