Pipette hand dyed Bamboo Silk Sock skeins created by Camilla here at KNL.
The effect is a variegated colour-way with splashes of colour and pops of the natural cream yarn colour too ! Supersoft and a real treat for your needles/hook.
Bamboo Silk Sock Yarn is 4/14nm in construction with 350m (383 yds) per 100g. Bamboo Silk Sock Yarn is a perfect blend of soft merino wool (21 micron), bamboo and silk. The merino fibres have been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore will not ‘felt’ when dyed or washed making it a great yarn for an easy-care project. The merino also provides some warmth and stretch to the yarn while the bamboo is breathable making sure any garment made from this yarn will not be too hot. Bamboo is also anti-bacterial making garments odour free (perfect for socks!) Finally the mulberry silk gives strength and a smooth shine, lustre which shows off paler colours extremely well.
The merino used is mulesing free and comes from South America.
