KIDMO SOCK: Approximately 115g/425 yards 60/25/15 superwash Merino wool/kid Mohair/nylon. This is two-ply fingering or sock weight yarn with a good twist.

These were kettle-dyed a tonal blush/ecru base then glazed with a wash of light brown then light grey. Finally, they were speckled with golden brown and purple. The purple dye broke a bit so there are violet and hot pink specks here and there. Note that these hanks are variegated and each is different though they share the same colours - please alternate if using more than one. Two socks knit from the same hank will not be identical.

This is a sleek, strong, warm and slightly dense yarn; the mohair is noticeable but not super hairy. This base would be great for socks, but is excellent for just about any knit or crocheted item: mittens, hat, shawl, sweater... you get my drift.

While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
