Zealana - Cozi Sock yarn
Like its name suggests, COZI is cosy! Our first sock yarn was designed with softness and warmth at the forefront and contains 58% merino, 15% possum down and 5% baby alpaca. We added 20% Nylon and 2% elastic nylon to this mix to make all the difference in the fit department, rendering ribbing crisp and resilient. A high twist contributes to the elastic factor, making this yarn one of the springiest, warmest and most durable sock yarns you’ll encounter on the market!
Our colour palette for this yarn was inspired by vintage maps – there is a shade to suit all tastes! Why not make your loved ones a pair of the cosiest socks they’ll ever own!? While COZI is designed with the durability needed for sock knitting, it shares the same properties of luxurious softness and warmth with our other yarns and can be successfully made into almost anything you fancy, with special emphasis on hats and gloves due to its stretchy nature.
