80% Superwash Merino Wool and 20% nylon
A blend of 80% Superwash Merino Wool and 20% nylon for beautiful, durable socks. Julie Asselin puts an unusual amount of care into thoughtfully sourced yarn bases, which are hand-dyed at her studio in Quebec. The Merino wool chosen is supremely soft and bred in the U.S.A, where the yarn is also treated and spun, reducing the travel and carbon footprint of each skein. With 500 yards of yarn per 4 oz. skein, this yarn goes the distance through carefully considered construction. Each strand is lofty and loaded with air, making this yarn lighter and warmer than your average sock yarn, with plenty of yardage to create socks for feet of all sizes.
Nomade is hand dyed and while we do our best to send you skeins that match, some variation is to be expected and is part of the beauty of the product. We suggest you alternate skeins to reduce pooling.
