Similar to the base yarn we use for our Socky-talky line, but using long-staple BFL wool instead of Merino. The spin is smooth and soft, yet with the nylon component it offers the durability needed for socks and active wear. Truly a workhorse fingering weight yarn! Because of the superwash wool this is not suitable for felting.
This yarn takes dye beautifully, whether you are using acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-aid or even natural dyes. Just bear in mind that Superwash yarn strikes with acid dyes so quickly that it can be very tricky to get a decent solid tone. Use that to your advantage like we do, to get interesting semi-solids or go crazy with hand painting. We highly recommend this yarn to first-time dyers!
