I heard it on Facebook so it must be true... the highly regarded German hand dyed sock and lace yarn company known for its vibrantly hand-dyed yarns has added something new to their lineup: the coveted MCN blend, usually used for socks or shawls.
For those of you who don't keep yarn blends memorized the MCN is a blend of Merino, Cashmere and Nylon and is frequently used in sock yarns for hand-dying. It's one of the more preferred blends. You get the softness of cashmere with the long staple fiber of merino with a bit of nylon thrown in for extra wear. The only downside is that it doesn't come in any of their multi-colors, only in semisolid colorways.
70% wool (Merino), 20% Cashmere, 10% Polyamide
We proudly present our new Baby. Blend is a mixture and we have combined the advantages of cashmere, merino and a part of polyamide to achieve the perfect balance of this mixture. We believe that we have found the optimal twist for Blend. The twisting should not lose the soft, fluffy character of the cashmere part but it should still be stable enough to avoid any strong pilling effect, which is often the case in cashmere yarns.
We are offering this quality in semi-solid colorways only.
