Black Friday sale--20% off until November 26. This yarn is dyed by hand using colorfast acid dyes. "High Peaks Sock" is a 4-ply 80% Superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon yarn, approximately 100g and 435 yards.

It is light and springy, with the added softness of cashmere and the strength of nylon. This yarn would be perfect for really soft and luxurious socks or anything to be worn against the skin, such as hats, scarves or cowls. It would also be a great choice for a sweater that calls for fingering weight yarn. One skein should be enough for a pair of socks, but be sure to check your pattern's requirements.

High Peaks Sock is named after the 46 mountains once believed to be over 4,000 ft. in the Adirondacks in Upstate New York (though more recent surveys have put four of them just under 4,000 ft.). Many of Wandering Wool’s sock yarns are Adirondack-inspired, because where else to you need warm wool socks and accessories than in a cold, northern climate? Besides, the Adirondacks is among my favorite places in the world and inspires a lot of what I do. The MCN blend is named after the High Peaks (which I aspire to hike all of) because it is a good, sturdy sock yarn with a little something special, the softness of cashmere, which takes it to a new level.

Deep Amethyst is a semi-solid deep purple with shades of violet and blue.

Care: Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.

I do my best to represent colors accurately, but they may vary slightly when viewed on different monitors.
