This firmly-twisted yarn is the sister to my First-String line, but is an 80/20 combination, for those of you who love a sock yarn with nylon in it. If that’s what you’re looking for, First-String PLUS is the yarn for you. Sock yarn isn’t just for socks anymore…

Some ideas for using this yarn: Socks, Shawl/Shawlette, Hat, Fingerless Mitts, Infant Garments, Scarf, Cowl…..

When photographing my yarns & fibers, I strive to capture their true essence, but please know that there may be subtle differences between the pictures you see and the yarn or fiber you receive.
