100% superwash merino wool

This is the fingering-weight version of our signature sock yarn. A 3-ply, tightly plied, high grade superwash merino. STR has a lot of energy what we like to refer to as boing factor. The 3-plies make it a well rounded yarn, which is great for stitch definition. We call it lightweight instead of fingering-weight because of the elasticity, which makes it not a true fingering weight: close, though. This yarn truly rocks!

Yardage was increased to 405 yards in April 2012 per this Blue Moon blog post. Previously available in 360 yard skeins.

Weight decreased Nov. 2013 from 155g to 146g
Length remains the same due to a more accurate spec.
