This smooth, 4-threaded fingering weight yarn is a perfect mash up between the softness of merino wool and the longevity of nylon, with a biodegradable twist. It knits up perfectly for garments and other next-to-skin soft items.
BIOSOCK is our first yarn base that uses biodegradable nylon. This yarn will last as long as any other nylon blend since the nylon will only degrade when it reaches the garbage processing facility. There, special enzymes and micro-organisms are added to the waste, which break down the biodegradable nylon in the course of 3 years instead of the 40 years it takes most man-made fibers to be broken down.
