NFA Silky Sock
The name of this yarn may be a bit misleading as it is not a sock yarn but rather a 'sock weight yarn' or a fingering or 4 ply weight yarn.
It is however, one of our most luxurious yarns and is buttery soft and silky. The gorgeous sheen and drape makes this perfect for a really special project. Create gorgeous shawls, wraps and scarves with drape and swing or a beautiful silky top for Summer.
Despite being 50% Merino there is not a lot of memory in this yarn as the 50% Silk has no stretch, so garments will not stretch very much therefore it is not recommended for socks as they would most likely not stay up.Fibre - 50% Merino Wool, 50% Silk
