It is hard to improve Shephard Sock yarn from Lorna's Laces, but they did! This yarn is so soft and comes in the same gorgeously died colors as their other sock yarn.
Fiber content: 55% Superwash Merino wool, 15% Nylon; 30% Outlast viscose.
The nylon gives the yarn durability. The viscose gives the yarn softness and comfort which is similar to cotton or silk. The wool of course gives it warmth.
Solemate can also be used for baby sweaters, lace work, shawls and scarves.
425 yards/100 grams; 7 sts = 1 inch on #1 needle.
