With this wool blend thread (50% hypoallergenic polyacrylic microfiber, 30% wool, 20% hypoallergenic polyamide microfiber), a “fur stitch” effect can be achieved. Available in 50g balls. Use with no. 8 knitting needles. Machine washable at 30C° using a gentle cycle for wool using an appropriate detergent and softener. Garments created with Sophie threads may be partly spun dried and then should be dried flat. It is not necessary to iron, but to raise the curls on the garment by hand.
