80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon 2 oz. skein, 3-ply, 225yds
Specialty Sock is our most popular line of sock yarn, and made with the same Superwash Merino as our Island Collection yarns. Spun with a looser twist than some other sock yarns, it makes beautifully draping fabric for shawls, slouchie hats and scarves when using a larger needle. When using a smaller needle it makes a sturdy fabric for socks and mittens! Great for colourwork and cabling of all kinds!
Care instructions: Machine wash on gentle cycle and tumble dry. Handwashing may lead to less pilling on garments.
