All of the color chart colors are available in Väinämöinen DK sock yarn.
Please let us know when ordering which colors you would like. All the colors are shown on the Color Charts page.
Our colorchart is rather extensive at the moment, but even then, some customers do not find the shade they are looking for in the colorchart. In case of a custom colorway, choose the "custom colorway" option for an additional 10 % charge. We will contact you after placing an order to determine the shade you are looking for.
All custom colorways are dyed separately for you, and the entire batch will guaranteed to be of the same lot. We cannot guarantee the same exact shade onto the next batch so please order the amount necessary for you to complete your project. These custom colorways are always special cases, so they will be charged a moderate 10 % extra per skein.
For yarns to be dyed into colorchart colorways we do not charge extra. The additional custom dye job charge applies only to shades blended separately to your needs.
Custom colorway orders are not applicable for the return or refund terms.
For custom dye orders we will notify you of the processing time. All orders will be shipped only after payment has been received.

Väinämöinen is a 4-ply fingering weight sock yarn, and the foundation of our line of sock yarns. The sport weight, 6-ply version is known as Väinämöinen Sport, and the latest addition to our sock yarn collection is the 8-ply Väinämöinen DK. Just like Väinämöinen Sport, the DK weight version is otherwise similar to Väinämöinen in durability and intensity of colors, but it has 8 strands and feels slightly softer than regular Väinämöinen.
Väinämöinen DK is, like all Väinämöinen yarns, spun in Germany. It is perfect for socks, but knits up to beautiful cabled accessories and pullovers etc.
One skein of Väinämöinen DK will be enough for a pair of adult size socks (shoe size EU 40) with a short to medium cuff.
