This is a lovely soft 60% alpaca, 30% nylon and 10% wool blend two-ply sock yarn. Locally mill spun and then kettle dyed by me in small unique batches using commercial acid dyes for color and light fastness. 3.7 oz / 391 yards per skein. Listing is for one skein.
I would recommend a size 3 needle for knitting this up but this all depends upon your personal knitting tension and project. It falls between a heavy fingering weight and sport weight. It's heavier than most commercial sock knitting yarns.
