This yarn is composed of 85% machine-washable merino wool and 15% nylon. Because of its unparalleled softness, you will want to knit more than socks: try it for shawls, mittens, baby clothes! Each skein contains 100g of wool, 400 metres of yarn. This is more than enough to knit a pair of adult stockings. In the self-striping version this sock yarn is dyed by hand so as to create stripes when you knit it. It's almost magic!!
If you're looking for a pattern a bit more challenging than traditional socks for this yarn, take a look at the Bullseye socks pattern. This unique construction, beginning at the back of the calf, showcases the self-striping effect of the yarn.
