This self striping fingering yarn is the ultimate fun for socks! Although you can also use it for other colorful projects. All colorways are dyed on WeStYarn Pippi Sock a 4ply superwash Merino Wool (75%) and nylon (25%), fingering weight yarn from mulesing-free farms. One skein is 100 gram and has 425 meter.
The merino comes from various sources (Argentina, Uruguay and Europe - not Australia), and none of the merino fibres are to come from farms practising mulesing. The merino is therefore mulesing free.
The fine merino makes the yarn super soft and the nylon gives it the strength necessary for hardwearing socks. You can knit this yarn on various needle sizes. Recommended needle size: 2.0mm - 4.0mm depending on the fabric you require for your project, i.e. for socks 2-2.5 mm and for sweaters and shawls 3.25 - 4mm.
Dyed in an environmentally friendly manner with acid dyes, carefully washed in unscented wool wash and sent in skeins unless otherwise requested. I recommend hand wash to best preserve color.
This yarn can be dyed upon order. Just send me an e-mail and I will get in touch with you!
The listing is for 1 skein of yarn (unless explicitly mentioned otherwise). Colors may slightly vary on every device. I photograph the yarn with natural light.
