What makes this sock yarn? The inclusion of nylon helps to make a more robust yarn to keep hand knit socks from wearing through as easily. Can sock yarn be used to make more than socks? ABSOLUTELY! I use this yarn for hats, sweaters, mittens, cowls (seen in the sample photo, paired with Peaches and Cream Barbie colorway), and more.
This yarn is hand-dyed and requires a little extra care. It should be hand washed by soaking your item in tepid water with a soap for wool. Gently squeeze the water from your handmade item, never wringing it, and place in a towel and roll up to remove the excess. Lay flat to dry.
Some colors may bleed, depending upon the ph balance of your water. To be cautious, you could add a color catcher sheet to your wash water.
