Leo & Roxy Yarn Co. 80/20 Sock
This lofty 3-ply fingering yarn is a favourite of ours! Super soft with just enough nylon to make it perfect for socks but it’s equally perfect for lightweight sweaters and shawls. It takes dye beautifully resulting in vivid results.

Weight: Fingering, 113 grams (4 oz.), 384 metres (420 yards)
Gauge: 24-32 sts/10 cm (4″) on 2.0-3.25 mm (US0-3)
More About Leo & Roxy Yarn Co.
Leo & Roxy Yarn Co. is the pride and passion of a couple of Canadian indie-dyers, Kerri Masseo & Jolyn Gardner, looking to get their fibre freak on!
First, to clear things up, we’re not Leo or Roxy – they’re just our ‘animal inspiration’.
LEO is a 1 year-old rambunctious, Rambouillet and sibling of ‘Socks’ and ‘Gansey’ at the Gardner homestead. While a bit young yet, all will be donating their yearly shearings for an up-and-coming farm to needle product line of custom harvested, spun, and dyed yarn provided direct from our farm Baaaaaad Boys lol -stay tuned.
As for ROXY, she’s our colour mascot – a 1 year-old, Green Cheek Conure with some serious sass – who’s now growing into her colours and inspiring our need to be colourfully creative, and have fun doing so (and occasionally bite but we’re working on that 😉).
We hope you’ll love our yarn as much as we love creating it.
