This week’s featured yarn is Mille Colori Socks and Lace, from Lang Yarns. It’s a fingering-weight blend of 75% Wool and 25% Nylon. The nylon lends durability to socks, but this yarn is also an exquisite choice for light and lacy shawls and scarves. It has a gradient self-striping effect, and comes with or without a metallic strand for a bit of sparkle.
