After hearing of the fiber content of this yarn, you are thinking, first it was soy, then corn and now chitin??? Toss off the question marks, because you will definitely want to give this yarn a try. The wool gives it the delightful loft for handknit socks, the soy the sheen, cotton and the chitin give it wearability.
50% superwash wool, 25% soysilk, 22.5% cotton, 2.5% chitin. The chitin is a fiber made from shrimp and crab shells. 100g balls, 425m (463 yards) so you only need one ball for a pair of socks. 8sts/in on size 2 needles.
The yarn is soft and with the beautiful colors available, it is definitely one you'll want to have.
