This collection is on our Corrie Sock base. It is a fingering weight Correidale wool (75%) with nylon (25%) yarn. Each min skein is 1 ounce and 107 yards. This set has 5 minis for a total of 535 yards. This yarn is great for socks or shawls. It has the strength for socks but yet the drapability for a great shawl too. You can use a variety of needle sizes depending on the project. I like to use US size 1 for socks and US size 4 for shawls and scarves.
