This yarn base, Snug, is a soft, springy, fingering/sock weight yarn. It's light enough for delicate knits, but strong enough to be a great sock yarn. Made with 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon, and spun 4-ply for good bounce, I think it's a great combination of a luxurious texture and strength/functionality. 435 yds, 100g. Machine wash gentle (although hand wash is extra safe for hand-dyed yarns), dry flat.
