MERYLON 75/25: Approximately 100g/463yds 75/25 superwash Merino wool/nylon. This is an excellent offering of the ubiquitous 75/25 fine fingering/sock yarn that is so useful and versatile.

These were kettle-dyed with a wash of deep red followed by mahogany red, both applied in a very crowded pot which results in a mottled strike. Finally they were speckled with copper, brown, gold and bright red. The hanks are not twisted prior to speckling so coverage is more random. This is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is slightly different, if you use more than one please alternate. Two socks knit from the same hank will not be identical.

This is a lovely, soft (but tough!) yarn, great for just about any fingering weight project you can think of. It is perfect for next-to-skin items and baby garments. If you knit socks tightening the gauge slightly will ensure iron-like wear.

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