Stone Soup is a natural yarn sourced from rambouillet, columbia, lincoln, navajo-churro, alpaca, silk, bamboo, tencel, bison, and lama. It is currently available in fingering and DK weight in five rustic shades. It's tweedy texture and crisp stitch definition create beautiful pieces that are durable for all seasons.
This particular blend knits up into a flannelly-soft fabric which is highly breathable, wicking, and cohesive. With just a couple of wearings and washing, the fabric surface fulls a bit which in turn adds even more to its life. In my experience, Stone Soup pills very little. And of course, the natural shades keep their wonderfully rich colors for life!

The fingering weight has a combination of merino and longwool fibers spun with a tighter twist that offers softness along with tough wearability. The blend also has a measure of Tencel, which helps to regulate body temperature and has great resilience against wear.
Stone Soup makes lovely sweaters and accessories—even socks! It competes well with other all-wool sock yarn (such as Hazel Knits). Naturally, sock wear will depend highly on how you wear and use your socks. Tryout Stone Soup for yourself, you won't regret it!
