Hand Dyed Yarns - Superwash Merino 60%/Yak 20%/Silk 20% Sock Yarn
3-ply, approximately 100gm/400yds in each skein; recommended knitting needle US 0-2, crochet hook, E-G, weaving sett 10 epi for plain weave or 15 epi for twill patterns.
This glorious luxury fingering weight yarn makes super comfy socks, hats, gloves, scarves, shawls, - pretty much anything you want to wear right next to your skin! We have hand dyed this using an acid dye for a lovely semi-solid color. The twist angle is firm between 20-30 degrees for you techno fans, like Sand!) which helps to slow the pilling during wear, since the yak is quite short staple. That, plus the silk, will mean that this is a good, hardworking yarn in addition to being luscious to wear!
1 skein is plenty for most socks, hats, cowls, and some shawls; 2-3 skeins would work up into scarves or various sizes of shawl. As always, each batch of hand dyed yarn we create is unique, so please order accordingly.
