Undyed Merino Superwash Sock Yarn with Lurex thread
75% Extrafine (19.5 micron) Superwash Australian Merino Wool, 20% Nylon and 5% Silver Lurex to give that little bit of glitz.
Three plies of Merino/nylon blend are spun with a one ply of lurex for a soft, durable yarn with sparkle. There is enough lurex to add sparkle, without the scratchiness often associated with lurex yarns, and extrafine merino for a soft feel close to your skin. The added nylon gives you extra durability too.
The silver lurex retains its strength and shine through the dyeing process and is well plied with the wool, making it a pleasure to work with.
