Our Light Sock is a pleasant blend of fine merino wool with cotton and silk.
This fiber offers light and gratifying fabrics. It is fresh due to its cotton content, silk gives it a beautiful shine and merino wool ensures a good fit and blocking.
The 3 fibers are held together by a very fine nylon thread.
The different fibers absorb the dye in distinct ways, each one offering irresistible nuances.
Each skein is dyed individually or in small batches with professional acid dyes. Each skein is unique and different, therefore the same color way looks different from base to base and even from one skein to the next! To ensure random color distribution, we recommend working with two skeins of yarn at once, alternating every few rows each skein.
Please note that sometimes colors in the images might vary depending on monitors although I do my best to photograph the yarns accurately.
- Care: We recommend handwashing your hand dyed yarns to extend the life of your colors.
