Malabrigo's Sock yarn is a soft, smoothly-plied, light fingering weight yarn in a range of colors. Spun from 100% luxurious merino superwash wool and treated to make it machine washable for easy care, it’s a treat for the feet and also fantastic for shawls, scarves, and even baby clothes. It is sure to become a staple in your stash, not only for socks, but for any pattern calling for a delicate, yet durable, light fingering weight yarn. Each skein is 3.5 ounces (100 grams) yielding 440 yards (402 meters). To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
