This sock yarn from our collection of hand-dyed Marmicelle yarn is composed of 85% machine washable merino wool and 15% nylon.
With an unparalleled softness, you will want to knit more than just stockings, but also shawls, mittens, baby clothes!
Because of the random nature of speckled colorways, identical socks will not be possible. They will make coordinating socks, not an identical pair.
Each skein contains 100g(2x50g) of yarn, 400 metres of thread. This is more than enough to knit a pair of adult stockings.
♥ Now available in mini-skeins of 50g for a total 200 meters of yarn ♥
Use needles of 2.25 to 2.75 mm for a sample of 28 to 32 stitches = 10 cm.
Machine wash in cold water and dry flat.
IMPORTANT : About Speckled and Variegated hand-dyed yarns: because of the random nature of these colorways, identical socks and/or homogeneous color in other projects such as shawls or cardigans will not be possible even when using 2 skeins of the same dye lot. They will make coordinating socks, not an identical pair. It is best to switch rows between the skeins when carrying out your shawls, cardigans & other projects.

I have been knitting and crocheting for more than 30 years, and I have bought a LOT OF YARN in my lifetime, but I honestly have to say, this yarn is far beyond my expectations. It is beautiful... soft and squishy!! The hardest part will be figuring out what to make with my 3 skeins -- it will have to be just the right project, else I will just keep this in my stash and look at it and drool, thinking of all the beautiful things I could use it for!!!
Very nice sock yarn. Look forward to the knitting
