Arwetta Classic is a traditional 4-ply worsted spun yarn, made up of 80% long fibred superwash merino wool and 20% nylon. Nylon is a hard-wearing synthetic fibre, which is often used in yarn. Here it has been added to produce a yarn which is both soft and durable.
Arwetta Classic was originally designed as a soft and durable yarn for hand knit childrens' garments - and still today it is used to create a lot of childrens' knits.
For socks you'll need two skeins of Arwetta Classic. We recommend a small needle size (2-2,5 mm) for socks to get a tight gauge. You can find lots of free knitting patterns for Arwetta in Filcolana pages.
