We're so excited to offer Madelinetosh Dandelion - a 90% superwash merino wool and 10% fine linen blend, in the unforgettable colors of Madelinetosh. A strand of linen winds around the core of merino, creating a fascinating textural look. Each machine washable hank contains a generous 325 yards - enough for a pair of luxurious socks - two hanks can make a striking full-sized lace project. Made in South Africa, hand-dyed in Texas, USA
I bought this yarn at my LYS, not WEBS. A pair of fingering-weight socks knit up quickly and are very comfortable. The 10% linen adds a little "body" and does not detract from the elasticity you want in socks. A minor drawback is the occasional hair-like fiber (linen by-product?) which can easily be removed as you knit, if desired.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
