This is the supreme end of the sock yarn spectrum. With 85% Australian 19.5 micron super wash merino wool combined with 15% nylon this is just beautiful bouncy and next to skin soft. Although a lot of knitters crochets’ don’t knit it into sock because it will happily knit into beautiful scarves, squishy beanies and adorable children’s clothes or any number of hard wearing projects.
Being super wash it can be gently washed in the washing machine but most people will hand wash it with an approved wool wash separately at first.
