Silly String is a fun base with a unique texture. The slubs and squiggly single ply base make it a soft base for using in garments or accessories. We definitely do not recommend this base for socks as it is a single ply base. It is soft in the hand and although knitting with a slub yarn takes a little getting used to, the effect is really funky and fun!

Care for Yarn
I recommend only washing your yarn in cool water with a wool-friendly detergent such as Eucalan, Soak, or a lanolin-rich handmade soap. Superwash yarns can be washed on delicate in the washing machine, but NEVER put it in the dryer. Even superwash yarns can felt slightly and pill heavily if exposed to hot temperatures.
