Fingering Weight Deluxe Sock HIGH TWIST 85% Superwash Extrafine Merino 15% Nylon 5 x 100 gram Pack

Fingering Weight Deluxe Sock HIGH TWIST 85% Superwash Extrafine Merino 15% Nylon 5 x 100 gram Pack

Ref: MERNYHTWIST

Please note - we have changed our spinner for this base due to supply issues with our prevous spinner (due to Covid restrictions). As from February 2021, stocks of this base are from the new spinner. Consequently, you may notice a slight change in the look of the yarn but it will dye and perform just as well.

"Deluxe" Fingering Weight yarn with 2 plies and a high twist

85% Superwash Extrafine Merino (19.5 micron) 15% Nylon Yarn (2/7.2Nm)

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.

The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.

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.
