When we had to let West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-Ply earlier this year, we began looking for as close a substitute as we could manage - a budget-friendly 100-gram yarn with a combination of wool and nylon to make it actually useful for socks, and ideally with a range of colors (tonal if possible) that would be great for socks or colorwork or shawls or wraps or sweaters...
We found Gusto Wool, and it checks every single box we were hoping for! Core is a yarn line that comes in an amazing range of colors, a sock-appropriate fiber blend, and is ever-so-slightly tonal... all at an amazing price.
