This semisolid grey based cool blue was actually inspired by steel bluing but given the chance to use an Arrested Development quote, I'm going to take it.
This sock yarn is an absolute treasure! The plush merino is complimented with the drapey, super soft, superfine alpaca and strengthened with a touch of nylon. This is a 4ply construction but not high twist so it fulls out beautifully after washing and not only makes gloriously soft, warm and luxurious socks but suits any 4ply/fingering weight pattern with it's mix of softness, fullness and strength. Once you touch this you won't be able to stop! Treat your feet, fingers or any other bits with this luxury that lasts. If you're after the cosiest of cosy warmth then this is the yarn for you.
Recommended care: This is Superwash Merino, Superfine Alpaca and nylon so can be machine washed at low temperatures (cool or cold) on a gentle cycle but we recommend hand washing as Alpaca is prone to felting and to keep the dye looking it’s best. Wash inside out for best results.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
