A soft, smoothly-plied, lightweight sock yarn in a range of semi-solid and watercolor multi colorways. Spun from luxurious merino and treated to make it machine washable for easy care. Although this is a sock yarn and can be used to make socks we do advise our customers to use a yarn with 25% nylon/acrylic for the toes and heels to give strength. This yarn is a particular favorite among knitters worldwide for shawls and scarves and garments!
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, try working from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
Please note: This yarn is supplied in a skein which requires winding before use. Attempts to use this yarn without winding into a ball first, will result in tangles and knots.
