Finally, a wool-free sock yarn! Knitters and the lucky people they knit for have long clamored for a wool-free sock yarn, something that wouldn’t irritate or overheat. Meet CoBaSi, a Cotton, Bamboo, and Silk blend that also has a generous amount of elastic nylon. It comes in 50 gram hanks and a wide range of colors, making it a perfect candidate for warm-weather colorwork. Soft and machine washable, this will also be a go-to for hardy baby garments.
Note from the manufacturer: skacel recommends testing your blocking method on a swatch BEFORE doing so on your final project to test for colorfastness.
