La Bien Aimée Merino Super Sock

The yarnstory: Hand-dyed by Aimée, this coveted sock yarn is for so much more than  socks.  The addition of nylon to the merino base adds structure to garments and keeps them from "growing" while retaining the super softness of merino. A perennial favorite of sock and garment knitters alike!

Weight/Length: 100g, 467 yds (425m)
Gauge Designation: Light Fingering
Gauge: 32 sts = 4 inches on US 0-4 (2-3.5mm) needles
