This listing is for a beautiful hand painted hank of 4 ply 75% superwash merino 25% nylon sock yarn. It knits up in to a strong fabric that is squishy and soft. This base is much softer than most 75/25 sock yarns on the market.

This yarn has been dyed to be self-striping. Two strands were dyed together; this will result in perfectly matched socks that can be easily knit 2 at a time. The skein is already divided in two. Pull from the same end of each skein for perfectly matched socks.

You will have ample yarn for a large pair of socks, or a small scarf.


Colorway: Beekeeper (gold, grey, black, navy blue)
Fibre Composition: 75% superwash merino wool 25% nylon
Weight: Fingering weight, 4 ply
Approximate Skein Size & Yardage: 100 gm / 450 yards
Suggested Gauge: 7 to 8 sts per inch, US 1-3 needles
