Pascuali offers one of the best blends of natural fibres for durable, practical and beautiful wool socks especially for people who want to avoid synthetic fibres. Because it is made with sheep's wool, it is warm in the winter. The ramie in the yarn ensures excellent moisture absorption and the silk provides a very nice shine and high elasticity.
This 4 ply yarn is very pleasant to wear. It doesn’t itch and feels very soft to the touch. Even though it is a sock yarn, you can also knit many other garments and accessories with it.
