Tempted by Tempo from Eden Cottage Yarns

I’ve been sitting here for a while now trying to find away to introduce Tempo 4ply from Eden Cottage Yarns and I am struggling!  Tempo 4ply is classic 75% wool / 25% nylon sock yarn.  Here is where it becomes difficult, I want to say it is the work horse of sock yarns, it is hard wearing and reliable, but I feel that sentence somehow takes away from it’s beauty.

Tempo feels a little coarser than Hayton or Titus 4ply when you knit with it, but once you wash it, it softens up a treat!  This yarn is a perfect example of working with good quality yarn, particularly the semi solid hand dyed yarns such as Tempo 4ply (I wrote a blog post all about it here).

Tempo 4ply in all its stunning muted tones and fantastic stitch definition will make your socks look amazing. I used Tempo in my Lazy Sunday Sock collection for Drift Away, the unisex design. I figured that the majority of guys might not be as appreciative of silk or cashmere blend socks yarn 😉
