Dream Sock is a true fingering weight yarn, an ultra-soft merino/nylon blend. It knits up beautifully for both socks and shawls and creates a soft, drapey fabric. It's a complement to my Smooth Sock, which is a rounder and plumper base. Choose Dream Sock when you want lighter weight socks or drapier shawls.

Dream Sock is a true fingering weight yarn.
• Composed of 85% superwash extra-fine merino wool and 15% nylon.
• Works well for both socks and shawls
• For socks, aim for a gauge of 7.5 to 8 stitches per inch, which is usually achieved with a needle size of 2.25mm to US size 2 (2.75mm).
• For shawls, aim for a gauge of 5 to 6 stitches per inch, which is usually achieved with a needle size of US 4 to 6 (3.5 to 4mm)
Hand wash, air dry
Dream Sock should be hand washed with a gentle wool wash and cold-water rinse. Always air dry to keep your knitwear looking its best.
Depending on the difference in chemistry between your local water and mine, there may be some color bleeding in the wash process. Washing and rinsing in cold water will help to minimize this. If you prefer to wash your socks in warm water, I recommend adding a color catcher to the wash. You can learn more about how water affects color in this article in the June 2018 issue of Spin Off magazine.
