I'm looking for a yarn with at least 20% nylon content. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have used Dazzleaire yarn for years to knit houseshoes. The nylon content of the yarn makes them wear much better. I can no longer get this type of yarn. I would appreciate any suggestions as to where I can find something similar.
I just bought two skeins of Stroll fingering weight yarn to do heels and toes on some socks I'm making; colors are black and buckskin. The buckskin feels ok but the black has a very harsh feel, pretty much like an inexpensive acrylic. Will this wash out? I'm using it anyway since it's just for heels and toes, but it's disappointing. It's also lighter in weight than the same 4-ply wool/nylon fingering yarn that I used for the body of the socks.
My apologies for missing your post. I've noticed that with the black & darker yarns because of the excess dyes but it does soften with washing or soaking. But please feel free to give customer service a call at 1-800-574-1323 or via email here if you have concerns & they will take care of you :)
