This month's update features our new yarn base: BIOSOCK.

I'll be honest, I've heavily fallen for this yarn base. It's soft as butter, works up very fast in projects and takes dye very vividly.

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.

Fiber contents: 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Biodegradable Nylon
Weight per skein: 100 grams / 3,5 oz
Running Length: 400 meters / 437 yards
Yarn Type: Fingering / Sock
Threads: 4-ply spun

With a yarn base called BIOSOCK, you probably already guessed that we got our inspiration for this update from the Bioshock games.

I (Aiden) love these dystopian games, even though some of them are getting eerily close to current day events. Jack still has them on their 'I need to play this one day' list. 


Stay Awesome,
