Formerly known as MightySock Alex is a smooth, shiny, sock yarn is 50% superwash Merino 50% Tencel. The Tencel gives it great strength and a soft feel, perfect for next to the skin or baby wear. When knitted on larger needles it drapes beautifully. It is cooler than pure wool yarn making it perfect for 3 seasons of wear. Alex is a pleasure to work with, putting up with ripping, and re-knitting, with aplomb. Hold it double for projects requiring a worsted weight yarn and for a more subtle color effect. Machine wash, lay flat to dry recommended, although it can be machine dried.
