Product Description

My aim when I developed this blend was to retain the wonderful softness of alpaca in a durable sock blend that won't wear out after a few wearings. I believe I succeeded!
I won't recommend machine washing or drying, but I have done this to my socks and experienced very little felting or shrinkage.
The bamboo doesn't take the acid dye like the animal fibers do, so when this yarn is dyed it has a heathery or tweedy effect that is very pleasing.
