Aphrodite Sock yarn is super plush 2-ply "ultrafine" merino yarn, each fiber has a diameter of 17 microns, and what this means to us, is that is super-soft. (feels like it has cashmere in it)
Ultrafine wool is the finest in the world and has the micron range of 16.1-17.5.
(Cashmere is in the 14-16 micron range)
Great for socks, shawls, pullovers & cardigans.
Semisolid shades of blues, purples, grays, with goldy brown accents.
