So you're in the market for sock yarn (this is me, I literally mean for sock knitting), that isn't superwash treated, doesn't contain nylon and gives you a high when you give it a good sniff. Introducing our new sock yarn Auntie Plastique ;) 

Mohair is your nylon substitute here as it's tough as fuck due to a very long staple length. Grown, processed and spun by the fab folk at Laxtons in Yorkshire, dyed by the Countess and Blazin'Squad in Manchester city centre.

Fibre Composition 50% Corriedale & 50% Mohair
Yarn Weight Fingering weight
Skein Weight 100 grams / 3.5 oz

Notes about hand dyed yarn

Yarns are unique and there will be small differences between skeins, even if dyed in the same batch
