100 % Dorset sock weight yarn.  Wool from Dorset sheep shrinks very little if at all when washed thus making a great sock yarn that does not require chemical altering (superwash). The Dorset has a nice "squishy bounce".  When knitting, remember that the yarn will bloom when washed.  I have washed my socks in the washing machine. They have bloomed nicely and a gentle tug when wet insures they keep a good fit.  Do NOT dry in drier !

These colors have been developed by NY dyer, Wobble Gobble.
