75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon 50g (212m/232.5yd) Machine washable, but for best results hand wash cold. Classic sock yarn kettle dyed in ‘solid’ colours which may contain variations in shade or intensity to give a semi-solid effect. A soft and smooth worsted-spun yarn with added nylon for strength, this is a classic sock yarn which is also suitable for baby clothes as it stands up to washing and wear, but still has next-to-skin softness. This yarn has good stitch definition and produces a smooth, soft fabric, perfect for cables, lightweight textured knits, or bouncy garter stitch, and blocks well for open lace patterns in garments or shawls. It produces excellent hardwearing socks at a tighter gauge.
