Classic Merino Superwash Sock Yarn is a light fingering weight 100% superwash merino wool yarn that is an excellent sock yarn. It has a 2-ply construction with a very tight twist, which creates a more durable fabric with nice stitch definition. This yarn is an excellent choice for baby garments since it is machine washable and because fine gauge yarns are so perfect for baby knits while having the advantage of being fairly quick small projects. It washes up very soft for next to the skin garments. This yarn is also great for lace knitting, such as shawls, and sweaters.
One skein should be enough for an average adult pair of socks, finger less mitts or gloves. You should knit these type garments at a tighter gauge for increased durability.
All of our bare yarns are scoured to remove the spinning oils so they are ready to knit from right away. This sets the twist and allows the fibers to bloom so that your gauge will be more accurate. It is also ready for you to hand dye with a dye designed to permanently dye protein based fiber. We recommend Sabraset dyes.
