A superwash merino and nylon blend producing a versatile hard wearing and machine washable yarn ideal for socks but, due to the soft merino used, also suitable for shawls, scarves and other garments worn next to the skin. Composition : 75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon Length : 425m/464yds per 100g/3.5ozs Weight : 4 Ply/Sock Due to the nature of hand dyed yarn, no two skeins are the same, even though they may be dyed in small batches using the same colours and methods. Therefore, if you're making an item using more than one skein, you may wish to alternate skeins every few rows. Hand washing using a mild detergent is recommended to help keep your finished item looking lovely for years to come. Minimal colour bleeding may occur during the first few washes. Any questions, just ask!
