Nylon Yarns

What is nylon and why do we love it for knitting?

Nylon is a man-made from polymers then pushed through a spinneret to shape and cool. This unique fiber has many wonderful properties and may be used alone or combined with other fibers to provide: strength, elasticity, lustre, color absorbtion, and durability.

Nylon is often added to sock yarn to allow your socks to stay up and keep their shape. It makes a great base for furry and fluffy fibers and since it can be molded into unique shapes, it's ideal for novelty yarns such as Lang Ario and Plymouth Eros Trellis type yarn.
