'Amble - named to reflect the slow relaxed walking we enjoy in the English Lake District.'
This beautiful sock yarn from The Fibre Company contains a recycled nylon* and an alternative to the standard super wash treated yarns - a blend of merino and alpaca fibres processed with an eco-friendly anti-shrinkage Easy-wash treatment.
*Nylon fibre is not easily biodegradable. However, it has strength qualities that give yarns and socks made therefrom more durability. The recycled nylon used in our sock yarn Amble comes from leftover industrial waste of processing nylon, therefore diverting waste from landfills, and using fewer production resources like water and fossil fuels than virgin nylon.
