Pleiades Sock Yarn
Sweetly soft and durable socks! Pleiades wool free sock yarn is the ideal yarn for not only socks, but shawls accessories and garments too. Because of the elastic content, this yarn holds it's shape wonderfully, so its a great yarn if you're not used to using yarns that drape, like 100% bamboo and Tencel. This yarn blooms with washing, meaning it softens, and fills in gaps, so it gets softer, and hides stitch imperfections.

Bamboo 55%, Cotton 24%, Elastic 21%
Fingering/Sock Weight
345 m/377 yds
100 g/3.5 oz
