Hand dyed self striping sock yarn in 75% superwash merino wool with 25% nylon for extra durability.
Each colour repeat of blue and bronze gradient stripes is around 20 rows on 2½ mm/US1½ needles, with standard 64 stitch socks. The sample sock shown in the pictures is knitted on a 72 needle antique sock machine, which makes the stripes slightly narrower.
This listing is for a 100 g skein containing 420 meters/459 yards of yarn. The merino wool is super soft and very warm, easy to knit with and has wonderful stitch definition. The nylon content makes the yarn hard-wearing so you can have your socks for years and years.
Machine washable on gentle/30°C. My yarns are dyed with professional acid dyes and thoroughly washed after dyeing, however slight bleeding of excess dye may occur the first few washes, so please wash separately.
I share my home with two cats, and although I try to keep the yarn and the kitties separate, I cannot guarantee that the yarn is completely free of cat hair - something to note if you are allergic.
I try to represent the colours as accurately as I can, but please keep in mind that all monitors differ, and that the colour you see on your screen may be slightly different from the actual colour of the yarn.
