    Arne and Carlos: What an enlightening video on the creative process behind the manufacturing of Regia Sock Yarns! I have learned a lot and will definitely look for Regia Sock Yarns bearing your signature (Arne & Carlos) on the paper band. This is a fascinating video! I am knitting socks irregularly with various yarns, mostly fingering yarns. Cannot pretend that I have looked specifically for Regia sock yarns previously. Thank you so much for this video, for your work and way of sharing with us all! Take care! 😉

    Thank you for the interesting video. My favorite is from your first collection….Summer Night….that is the color that sells the best in my little studio. I enjoyed seeing Lofoten, especially the sheep and dying session!I

    I love how technology can be used to create beautiful art like socks made from your creative ideas! I found this to be a fascinating conversation. I think the seagull was saying how much they liked your designs too .

    Thank you, dear Arne and Carlos, for a fascinating insight into designing and making sock yarns. I love knitting socks and got all excited at the idea of buying Summer Night. But, oh dearie me, it’s DK weight. I knit all my socks in 4 ply and use one tried and tested pattern that always turns out well. Have you ever considered having your beautiful designs made up into 4ply? I’m sure there would be a market for them.

      Hi Claire. The yarns are available in 4-ply (fingering weight). Summer Night is a popular colorway and often out of stock but I just did a quick check and found it available online at Halcyon Yarn in Maine (not sure where you are located. Hope this helps. Lynda

    I found your yarn in the Husfliden in Fagernes and bought one of the Fjords and Mountains as a Christmas exchange gift at our knitting guild. The recipient was quite familiar with your work and excited to make a new pair of socks. Today’s video was “as always” Carlos and Arne brilliant.

    Thank you for this interesting insight into how these yarns are made – both the technical process and where you find your inspiration. Regina sock yarn has been my favorite yarn to knit socks with for 30+ years. The quality is always exceptional for long wearing and comfortable socks. Patterned socks with these printed designs are such fun to knit and people watching you knit them are fascinated that the design just appears! I’ve made color work socks also but find for normal wear they can be too thick and not fit well in a shoe. I’ve knit several pairs with your color-design inspiration but my favorite is “summer night” – that combination just spoke to me immediately. After 4 years of wearing these daily as slippers I recently mended some almost-holes and they are like new again! I hope you will keep designing these. (Lynda in Massachusetts)

    I have been knitting socks for at least 40 years, and have found the regia yarn to be the most rewarding, especially your designer yarn. The finished product is always the best. However I knit from toe up, and a k2 p1 rib, so your designs don’t always end up like the picture, but the fit is better. Nevertheless I will continue to do my thing. Many many thanks, your socks are never boring to knit, and always lovely to look at, and as to wearing,— they’re the best, warm, cozy, and don’t have to be mended too often. As a dyer I tried to do a similar pattern thing on a knit sock blank with many syringes, and serious dye. It was unique, messy, and a lot of cleanup, but not a thing I would do again, especially when your yarn is so gorgeous. Thank you thank you

    Dear Arne, I am so happy to see how well you are looking after Covid. I too have a very hard time remembering after my bout with covid. It is improving though not as quickly as I wish. Dear Carlos, thank you for being so patient with Arne. I know sometimes it is very hard for my family with me. I really love your Regia line of yarns. Thank you for the behind the scene look at your designing process.

    The first time I saw a skein of Regia of yours, my heart skipped a beat! Right in the knitting department of Karstadt in Bremen, where I lived, then. You always have such beautiful yarn, the colours, the texture! Now that I am back to living in Québec, I sometimes find it a bit difficult to find Regia at my local yarn shop, but then, there is always the Internet! Keep up the great work!

    I do not knit socks but really like the Regia sock yarn. Has anyone use this yarn to knit something other than socks, like a large triangular shawl? I wonder what kind of pattern would develop.
    Thank you for any feedback.

    Love hearing more about your sock design work! I crocheted a granny scarf from one of your folk pattern yarns and my partner made me matching socks on his antique Legare (Canadian) sock knitting machine. Did you know your sock yarn works on those machines too? He can literally crank out socks from your yarn–and they’re beautiful! I wore the scarf and socks when I saw you speak in Longmont, Colorado. Looking forward to making more! PS It’s snowing here.

    Loved this! I’ve always wondered how this was done. Very fascinating! I bought a lot of Regia yarn on my knitting cruise with you March 1-10, 2020. Haven’t made any yet.

    Would love to pick up some of the Regia Arne & Carlos sock yarn, but it is not easy to find here in Canada. I hesitate to order from the US because of the lousy exchange rate, high cost of shipping and duty. Any ideas? Also, looking for your fabric here in Canada too, but no luck! Do you have a distributor yet?

    Can anyone give me the name and color no. For the yarn referred to as the “Scream” ?

    Maria, I was wondering the same thing? Is there a new line coming out soon, where this one will be?
