Tuffy Canadian Sock Yarn description:
Our 2-ply Canadian spun worsted weight sock yarn is great for warm, thick socks. With 20% nylon, socks will hold up to lots of hard use. Consider making fun and colorful socks using your leftover worsted weight scraps and just using our Canadian Sock Yarn for the heel and toe. Handwash with mild soap and lukewarm water. Made in New Brunswick, Canada by the venerable company Briggs & Little.
This yarn is a terrific substitute for Collingwood Rug Yarn, although not coned the feel, fiber content and durability are very close.
