Laneras Yarn Co, Beartooth High Twist Sock: Pier 39
Nikki and Jay are the married team behind Laneras Yarn Company. They source their yarn from their mill in Jay's native Uruguay, which makes ethically sourced and sustainably processed yarns that they then hand dye in Connecticut.
Beartooth Sock is Lanera's tightly plied Polwarth wool 4ply sock yarn that uses the "opposing ply" spinning method to create a more durable yarn with no nylon. One of the four singles is spun in the opposite direction so that when the four are plied together the opposing strand gets tighter. The resulting yarn is more durable and takes the dye differently, creating the subtle barber pole effect seen in the finished yarn.
