About Us!

Red Sock Blue Sock Yarn was founded in 2013 by Ashley Ratnam as a way to further share her love of fiber with others. The name of her company is inspired by her two daughters, Mila and Paige, and their love of all things Dr. Seuss and the wonderful and crazy adventures to be had.

Red Sock Blue Sock Yarn strives to provide high quality yarns in a fantastic array of tonal solids all the way to vibrant and highly variegated colors. Dyeing is always a fun and crazy adventure and often has wonderful unexpected outcomes. Each skein is hand dyed with care on high quality fibers spun in Canada.

Ashley is the leader of this crazy one woman show and can normally be found at her kitchen stove splashing colours into her pots or in the studio winding endless yards of yarn or packaging orders. She is joined by her very patient husband, John, who assists with packing, skein labelling, and many other tasks.

Join Ashley in her colour adventure by following on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.



"It is stunning. The colors are deep, rich and saturated. The yarn feels squishy and smells great. Ashley does wonderful work.... This skein is breathtaking!" - Susan B Anderson

"I have to say that I liked her colors and yarns on the Etsy shop but I was blown away by the depth and vibrancy of Twilight (left) and the subtle tones of Steel Blue on the right when I saw them in person. Steel Blue is BFL Sock yarn, fingering weight, 435 yards. I love BFL sock yarn and I can't wait to dig into this one. The Twilight yarn is the Basic Sock 75% Merino, 25% Nylon, 460 yards of fingering weight. I just love this variegated colorway." - Susan B Anderson
