KIDMO SOCK: Approximately 100g/437 yards 55/20/25 superwash Merino wool/kid Mohair/nylon, a 4-ply fingering or sock weight yarn with a good twist. This is a replacement for my previous similar base, which was discontinued by the mill.

These were kettle-dyed a tonal medium neutral grey then speckled with grey, black and a bit of very dark brown. The hanks were twisted prior to speckling so coverage is relatively consistent. Regardless, this is a highly variegated colourway and each hank and batch is slightly different. Two socks knit with the same hank may not be identical. Please alternate hanks if using more than one. Additional photos are of a different bases to illustrate the colourway. This is similar to my “Selkie” colourway, but a more warm/neutral grey.

This is a strong, warm and slightly dense yarn; the mohair is noticeable but not super hairy. This base would be great for socks, especially if you are looking for something a bit different than merino/nylon. A little less soft than some other typical sock bases, it is still 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.
