Sturdy Sock 4ply Wool/Nylon 75/25 - Luxury yarns hand dyed in rural Englandlivepages::jquery();?>
4ply sock weight (approx 4/16Nm) - 75% Superwash Merino Wool 25% Nylon Yarn
Medium grade, 27 micron superwash merino wool is combined with nylon for a very durable and springy sock yarn, designed for items that will be worn and washed a lot. Whilst not quite as soft as our signature extrafine 19.5 micron merino yarns, this yarn is fantastic for hard wearing socks, gloves and jumpers.
If you are looking for a very soft Merino/nylon blend for next to skin wear, please see our Deluxe Sock (85% SW Merino 15% Nylon) yarn.
Approx. 400m/437yds per 100gm skein
Recommended Needle Size: 2.5 - 4mm needles
Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches
on 3.25mm (US 3) needles
None of our yarns have been sourced from farms that employ the mulesing system.
This yarn has been dyed using professional quality acid dyes and then rinsed and washed in gentle wool soap.
Yarn is delivered in the skein so you will need a swift and ball winder. If you would like me to send the yarn wound into a cake, please let me know.
Our yarns are dyed in small batches and mostly one-of-a-kind colourways ... please me sure you purchase sufficient yarn to complete your project.
