MERYLON 75/25 DK: Approximately 100g/248 yards 75/25 superwash Merino wool/nylon. This is a 4-ply DK weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed with a wash of pale violet followed by a wash of intense blue-violet and finished with a variegated wash of deep grey. Finally they were lightly and randomly speckled with turquoise, purple and black. Note that this is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is unique despite being from the same batch. Two socks knit with one hank will be similar but not identical. If using more than one, please alternate.
This is a great all-purpose DK weight merino and nylon blend; a plumped-up version of the Merylon 75/25 sock base. It is soft, lofty and smooshy with a nice twist, generous yardage, and with the nylon, will be durable. This would be perfect for winter accessories, bulky socks, sweaters, baby wear or a large shawl or cape.
While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
