“Ubuntu” - Zulu, meaning ‘humanity,’ and translated as 'I am because we are’; ‘humanity towards others.' In times like these, we find ourselves searching for how to help, contribute, and make things better. For Yarn's Sake is choosing to stand in the gap by celebrating humanity towards others. For every skein of Abstract Fiber Good Ole Sock you purchase in the color way “Ubuntu”, we’ll send $5 to Black Girls CODE - an organization empowering young girls of color to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.
Abstract Fiber owner Lori's grandmother would say about a reliable and honest person that they're a "Good Ole Sock" - especially if they were someone she liked.
This is an honest and well-behaved basic sock yarn that you’re sure to like a lot. The 75/25 blend of superwash merino and nylon is the most popular ratio in the commercial sock knitting world. What makes Good Ole Sock different from other blends is the extra springy softness of the superwash merino.
