This is the fingering-weight version of Blue Moon's signature sock yarn. A 3-ply, tightly plied, high grade superwash merino. STR has a lot of energy; what we like to refer to as boing factor. The 3-plies make it a well rounded yarn, which is great for stitch definition. Blue Moon calls it lightweight instead of fingering-weight because of the elasticity, which makes it not a true fingering-weight, close though. This yarn truly rocks!
