18.5µm Superwash Merino/Mint/Faux Cashmere Yarn

What's special about this yarn?

One of our goals is to develop elegant solutions to basic problems. Case in point: sock yarn. A sock should be durable, soft and elastic. Sometimes socks get wet and don't smell good, which is no fun for anyone. So how would we solve this?

Superwash merino is a staple for sock yarns for its softness and durability, and its even better when the superwash is made in a sustainable, ecologically responsible manner like ours is. Nylon is another must have fiber for sock yarns, since it provides both elasticity and enhances durability. What's even better than nylon? Faux cashmere...a special nylon produced through an innovative process that makes it amazingly soft, without compromising on any of the qualities nylon is known for.

Mint is one of the newer cellulose fibers, and it has two properties that make it an ideal choice for use in socks. It is naturally cooling to the skin and also has natural antibacterial properties. Both very important for happy feet. Its natural golden color adds nice depth when dyed.
