Tempo 4ply in Sparrow (Lot 160220)

Hand dyed 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon 4ply sock yarn in colourway Sparrow - is a blend of soft greys with brown markings inspired by the bird after which it is named.

Tempo is a brilliant all-round 4ply sock yarn - it softens considerably after washing, and with the nylon content is especially hard wearing if it's going to be well-worn and washed a lot. It's soft enough to wear next to your skin (for things like cardis, hats, shawls and gloves), though I recommend you put it through the washing machine at least once to soften it.

75% superwash merino, 25% nylon
2.5 - 4mm needles
14 WPI
Machine washable

We recommend that you wash dark colours separately or wash a swatch before using dark and light colours together.

As with all hand dyed yarns, I would recommend that you use two skeins at a time, alternating from each one every couple of rows/rounds (unless it's a one-skein project).
