This is a truly unique sock yarn! Vrinda sought a way to make a strong sock yarn without nylon. There solution? One ply of the 4-ply yarn is spun in the opposite direction of the rest, resulting in extra twist on that single ply when the four plies come together in the finished yarn. It also takes the dye differently, creating a lovely, heathered depth.
