The companies Schoeller Eitorf AG and Kammgarnspinnerei Süssen Gebr. Stahl GmbH & Co have been active in the hand knitting yarn market for over 150 years. Schoeller and Stahl are happy to bring us Fortissima Sock Colori Yarn.

Those who want to do their sore feet a real favor wear soft, cosy and warm socks. And if the socks happen to have been knitted by someone special, it should be considered a special sign of their appreciation. They have developed Fortissima/Socka – our popular sock yarn, for occasions like these. We use only the finest raw materials which are then processed at the highest level possible. Due to the high percentage of virgin wool, Fortissima/Socka is particularly soft and very supple. You’ll notice the moment you start knitting. The sock yarn is also, of course, a wash-and-wear product, which means hand-knitted socks will pamper you for a long time to come.
