Brown Sheep say: "Spun with 75% washable wool for easy care and 25% nylon for durability, this yarn makes wonderful socks that will wear long enough to justify all of those tiny stitches you so lovingly have put into a pair of Wildfoote socks. And remember, it makes great shawls as well."
I agree, I don't think I'm ever going to use a different sock yarn ever again! Buy 2 balls for sock for an average adult foot, or 3 if you're knitting for very large feet and don't want to skimp on the leg height! (As a rough guide: my sock legs are 8"/20cm from the heel to cuff and I have wide UK size 8 feet!)
Tension: 7 or 8 stitches per inch (28-32 stitches to 10cm) on 2.5mm needles.
Hand wash or machine wash on cool Wool wash only.
