Smooth Sock is the non-identical twin of Tough Sock - thinner and taller at 425m per 100g skein. With a high nylon content and the long staple of Blue Faced Leicester wool, this yarn will make super durable socks (or whatever else you may choose to knit with it). It will definitely take a beating!

Although I recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.

As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.
