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. This exclusive colourway was made for us by the folks at Forbidden Fiber Co in their Tennessee laboratory studio.
