Bamboo Silk Sock Yarn is 4/14nm in construction with 350m (383 yds) per 100g. Bamboo Silk Sock Yarn is a perfect blend of soft merino wool (21 micron), bamboo and silk. The merino fibres have been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore will not ‘felt’ when dyed or washed making it a great yarn for an easy-care project. The merino also provides some warmth and stretch to the yarn while the bamboo is breathable making sure any garment made from this yarn will not be too hot. Bamboo is also anti-bacterial making garments odour free (perfect for socks!) Finally the mulberry silk gives strength and a smooth shine, lustre which shows off paler colours extremely well.
The merino used is mulesing free and comes from South America. The fibre blend is a mixture of animal and plant fibres which will absorb dyes differently giving opportunity to create interesting colours. Ask for a sample to try the yarn.

This is a super fine and lightweight yarn. Although Fine Lace and Baby Silk Lace have the same length, the Baby Silk Lace just feels more delicate and lighter. I would not recommend it for Lace beginners, but for those who can knit lace it is perfect! This yarn is a dream for large shawls!
