We offer one of the best blends of natural fibres for durable, practical and beautiful wool socks especially for people who want to avoid synthetic fibres or simply who do not like to wear them. Because it is made with sheep's wool, it is warms in the winter. The ramie in the yarn ensures excellent moisture absorption and the silk provides a very nice shine and high elasticity.
This 4 ply yarn has is very pleasant to wear. It doesn’t itch and feels very soft to the touch. You can not only knit socks with it, but also many other types of garments.
For dyeers: The yarn can be easily dyed with acid and natural colours.
