Good lightweight hiking sock or a nice three season walking sock. Nylon has been blended in with the wool for increased strength and longevity; the yarn is a bit slubby. Even though it was designed specifically for socks, it also works beautifully for lightweight shawls.
yarn character: 3-ply, semi-worsted spun; yarn is a little bit slubby.
fiber content/care: 80% Targhee wool, 20% nylon. Pre-washed. hand wash warm with low agitation, lay flat to dry. If you knit them firm, they can probably be washed in the machine (I do).
