75% South American Merino, 25% Nylon. Superwash. No mulesing!

Samba is made for your busy feet! It is a classic sock yarn with some nylon to give the soft superwash Merino more strength. The smooth texture brings out the colours very nicely and makes knit socks super comfortable to wear, even in tight shoes. Samba is a very good choice for shawls and wraps, too, because of the crisp stitch definition it gives. Because you can simply throw the items into your washing machine, everyday accessories knit in Samba will last long and are easy to keep clean.

Samba is a well-known dance from Brazil. The dancers are famous for their fast, precise footwork and their bright and colourful costumes during Carneval.
