Composition: 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon Yardage: 425 yards (389 meters) / 113g Gauge: 7.0 to 8.0 sts = 1 inch Needle Size: US 1 - 3 or 2.25 - 3.25mm This yarn starts with eight strands of a sturdy blend of smooth merino wool and nylon (for socks that can stand up to being walked on!). The numerous plies and high twist creates a dense yarn that is durable and renders your stitches in high definition. A versatile fingering weight, Gluttony is a perfect choice for decadently cabled garments and accessories. You don’t normally find this level of pillow softness in an 80/20 merino nylon blend. The extremely high twist of this gluttonous 8-ply sock yarn will have you giddy as you work with it.
