Knitters are going mad for Madelinetosh, and with good reason. The glazed solids and subtle variegated colors make up a lovely artist's palette.

This combination offers an enjoyable knit resulting in beautiful, long lasting socks. Size is approximately 420 yards/ 4 ounces. 75% superash merino, 25% nylon. Fingering weight.
