A soft, smoothly-plied, lightweight sock yarn in a range of semi-solid and watercolor multi colorways. Spun from our luxurious merino and treated to make it machine washable for easy care. Don’t be fooled by the name- while it’s certainly a treat for the feet, this delightful yarn is also a particular favorite for shawls, scarves, garments, baby and child items, and gloves.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each skein may vary from the next. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. For ball winding services click here.
