80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon 2 oz., 225yd.
Made with the same superwash as our best selling wool, Island Collection Worsted, and some nylon thrown in for good measure, this yarn is a wonderfully sturdy sock yarn. Don't let that pidgeon-hole you into just socks though, colourwork mittens, baby items, sweaters and more are all great options! Just think our Island Collection Fingering, but with nylon. And, of course, since it's spun with Superwash Merino Wool, it'll hold up to gentle machine washing. (But of course, handmade items will last longer when they're handwashed.)
Please Note: We don't keep track of dye lots or dye formulas. Every batch is unique and we invent colour blends as we go. If you like a particular colour, don't hesitate, because once it's gone, it may be gone for good!
