This nice soft but hard wearing base consists of 75% super wash Merino and 25% Nylon. The nylon makes the base suitable for socks but is widely used for any type of garment. A fairly easy care yarn as it can be put in the washing machine but no warmer than 30c. There are 425 metres per 100g skein which is a generous amount. Could be stranded with our suri alpaca silk haze from our lace section to create a beautiful halo on your knitting/crochet.
