This is a fabulous yarn from Schoppel-Wolle: sock wool with hemp in a 100g ball. It's the first long-lasting sock yarn to be made with with environmentally-friendly, biodegradable nylon. We had to try it and it is absolutely gorgeous. Soft and silky with an amazing depth of colour in semi-solid and gently flecked colours. Forget socks with this! We want to knit tops!
