Freia Solemates is the sock yarn of your dreams - this yarn is incredibly soft and sooo cozy! This set comprises two identical balls of Shaniko merino fingering, 228 yards each to make the perfect matched gradient socks. These are so scrumptious you won't be able to stop at one pair!

About the fiber: The Shaniko superwash merino is grown in Oregon and milled in North Carolina. Shaniko wool is supplied under the Responsible Wool Standard, protecting animal welfare, social welfare and land health. Not only does the yarn feel good to the touch, it feels good to know they are supporting ethically grown wool and respectful farming practices.

The yarn is hand-dyed at the Freia studio in North Adams with acid dyes using processes that are gentle to the environment. The superwash treatment allows your finished product to be washed in a washing machine, and dried on low in the dryer.

The superwash process in conjunction with Freia's gradient dyeing methods creates a slightly speckled yarn - this is normal and gives the yarn an appealing gentle heathered look, this will be different from other yarns of theirs that you may have used in the past.
