Lorna's Laces Solemate Yarn - Bold Red Reviews

Lorna's Laces Solemate Yarn - Bold Red
Bold Red shown $27.00
Solemate is Lorna's latest amazing creation! A sock weight yarn that is made from 55% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon and 30% Outlast, a fiber technology that continuously interacts with a body's microclimate to moderate temperature from being too hot or too cold. It was used by NASA. Ferrari uses it for their race car seats. Not only do you get this cutting edge technology, but it also comes in your favorite Lorna's hand-dyed color combinations! And don't forget that it is machine washable. Could you ask for anything else in a sock yarn?

The color Go, Sandy, Go was created in honor of a very special JBW family/staff member, Sandy! In the fall of 2014, Sandy underwent chemo to address her recurrent cancer, and Lorna's was generous enough to dye up the gorgeous shade of peachy pink, the color endometrial cancer support, to help us raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Both Jimmy Beans Wool and Lorna's Laces are donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this color in any Lorna's Laces yarn to Cast of Chemo!, a fiber-arts based charity that helps to "fund research that will end the need for chemotherapy in breast cancer treatment and, ultimately, cure potentially all cancers."

Solemate is a sock knitters dream. 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The fiber content of Solemate is definitely designed with the sock in mind. I think the product description even talks about the cooling effect of one of the fibers. I have a great fondness for Lorna's Laces yarns because they are visually interesting, strong, soft, and-- in most cases-- machine washable. The only problem with these yarns are that they are hand dyed, which means that if you're going to knit socks and want them to match you may have a good bit of waste getting to where the color needs to be.

Knitting a sweater with it seems to be working well as long as you get the needle size right
