Väinämöinen is truly a sock yarn: durable but soft enough for various accessories worn next to skin. It also suits well for sweaters, jackets and skirts among other things. Väinämöinen sock yarns can be washed in the gentle cycle in the machine, but the colors may fade over time. Washing will soften the yarns.
