80% wool and 20% nylon
Sisu is a soft, durable utility yarn reinforced with nylon. This makes it ideal for socks, but because it is so soft it has become a favorite for utility wear, layered under snowsuits and jackets. It has also been a favorite for knitting kofte sweaters since the early 1980s, because the structure of the yarn brings out the pattern of these traditional knitted jackets. Garments knitted with Sisu have a long lifespan and can remain just as beautiful for several generations.
The yarn is superwash treated to withstand frequent machine washing.
For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
