MERYLON 70/30 SOCK: Approximately 100g/437yds 70/30 superwash Merino wool/nylon, 4 plies.

These were kettle-dyed a variegated blue-turquoise base with a lot of lime green, then speckled and spotted with bordeaux and vermillion. Note that this is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is slightly different, as is each batch of this colourway. The pictures are of a different base but accurately depict the colourway.

This is a perfect base for sock-knitting and I have that in mind when dyeing colourways - I have a limited supply and intend to keep the colourways fun and colourful. The high nylon content and slightly higher micron count of the Merino (a bit less soft but sturdier), as well as generous yardage ensures this base is good not only for a pair of adult socks but probably some extra heels and toes, too. It’s not as soft as my Merylon 75/25 base but smoother and softer than Tufflon.

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