Mini 6 Pack, Aussie Extra Fine HIGH TWIST Sock, Set HT661
You'll get Six 20 gram minis skein and a seasonal stitch marker in a nice package.
This is a special purchase Fingering Weight yarn with 2 plies and a high twist - We're taking this yarn for a test run. It's the same fiber as our other Extra Fine Merino bases, just twisted differently.
85% Superwash Extrafine Merino (19.5 micron) 15% Nylon Yarn (2/7.2Nm)
Two plies are twisted tightly together to produce a very soft and springy yarn. This yarn is slightly plumper than our Aussie Extra Fine Sock w/Nylon (which has 4 plies) and just as soft. The 2 plies make the yarn slightly bumpy which helps the strands of yarn hold together against each other making it great for colourwork and lace work.
This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and mitts.
