I bought this yarn base for Sock Club ... and bought a couple of extra kilos to try out! Here are 4 of the best selling Banshee Yarns colourways dyed on this base and our brand new colourway 'Dastardly'. As these were test colours, which I think will need some modifications for this base before they are the final colours for this blend, they are available now at £16 instead of £18. I'd love to know what you think!
Krypton Sock is very similar to a 75% superwash merino / 25% nylon base that you may have already knit with. Many dyers, including myself, refer to that as Platinum Sock. Krypton is quite a bit more special as it has a lower micron count of 19.5. The lower the micron count, the softer the yarn and you can definitely feel the difference between this and Platinum sock!
Krypton Sock is 425m per 100g and 75% 19.5 micron superwash merino & 25% nylon. It has a higher twist than Platinum Sock as well and a beautiful stitch definition. It is definitely going to become the house sock blend here at TLYC HQ!
