Tofutsies sock yarn from South West Trading Company is for all you sock lovers who enjoy colorful combos & unique fibers. Made of 50% superwash wool, 25% soysilk, 22.5% cotton & 2.5% chitin. Who would have expected that you could use chitin (made from the shells of shrimp & crab) to develop a terrifically soft & durable fiber? The result is a terrific sock yarn with antibacterial properties.

Interesting Note: Scientists have found this type of chitin to be very compatible with human tissue and helpful in accelerating the healing of wounds.
