Each skein of Bis-sock yarn is 100 gr (3.5 oz) 400 meters (435 yards) and is made of 85% merino superwash and 15% nylon.
Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Gauge : 28 to 32 sts on 2.25 to 2.75 mm = 10 cm (4 inchs)
I bought this with the "hope" I never have to make a pair of socks with it. I've known so many people with breast cancer in the past and have crocheted afghans for them...but thought if I ever have to do something again, I would make them socks to wear when they go to Chemo! I love the pink color of this yarn.
Biscotte yarn is truly stunning, creating the perfect gift for someone special! This is my all time fave!
I am more than pleased with the yarn ordered. I am going to make a pair of socks for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and this color is perfect. Not my first order and will not be my last
