Perfect for hand-knit socks, shawls, modern baby clothes and hats, accessories, mittens, and stuffed animals.
“Resilient” superwash merino sock yarn is Expression Fiber Arts’ signature sock yarn. Its 4-ply results in round, defined, beautiful stitches. The more plies the better for items that will get lots of wear like socks. Your projects will last and last with very little pilling, strand breaking or wearing thin. The yarn also has memory, or “resilience” (thus the name), which is ideal for socks since it stretches but bounces right back to its original length.
It is Fingering weight which is perfect for hand-knit socks, but also other accessories like hats, scarves and shawls, mittens, including baby and kid items. The Superwash Merino Wool is machine-washable. Hand-washing keeps items looking the best the longest, but no worries if your socks accidentally get tossed into the washer and dryer.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
