Deluxe 2-Ply High Twist Sock/Fingering Yarn
85% Superwash Extrafine Merino (19.5 micron) 15% Nylon Yarn
approx. 393 Yards / 360 meters / 100grams per skein
Two plies are twisted tightly together to produce a very soft and springy yarn. This yarn is slightly plumper than our original Deluxe sock yarn (which has 4 plies) and just as soft. The 2 plies make the yarn slightly bumpy which helps the strands of yarn hold together against each other making it great for colourwork and lace work. The thicker strands also help speckles pop even more.
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durabilty.
This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.
Recommended Needle Size: 2.5 - 4mm needle
Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches on 3.25mm (US 3) needles
Hand-dyed yarn created by Rick, owner of WhimzeeStitches Designs and WhimzeeStitches Yarn Co. This yarn was dyed using high-quality acid dyes in my home-based yarn-dying studio. Each skein is truly a one-of-a-kind and is dyed in small batches. Because of the nature of hand-dyed yarn, you may receive a skein that looks slightly different than the skein(s) pictured in the this listing.
I try my best to take photos to accurately represent the colors but since each computer/mobile device displays pictures slightly differently, colors may differ a little in person than what you see on your screen. if you have questions about color/photos, please send me a message. Thanks!
All yarn is dyed and stored in a pet-friendly, smoke-free environment.
Please hand wash with a wool wash in cool water. Lay flat to dry.
