Isager Sock Yarn
ISAGER SOCK YARN consists of 40% Easy Wash Alpaca, 40% Easy Wash Merino Wool and 20% Recycled Nylon. The quality has a good durability, gives a soft result and can be machine washed.
EASY WASH is the environmental friendly alternative to the standard chlorine process used to make the fibres machine washable without shrinking. The Easy-Wash process is a treatment with eco-friendly
oxidants, sourced in Germany and certified under REACH, Oeko-tex and ZDH (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical) standards. This means that this treatment does not involve the discharge of hazardous chemicals, which is not the case with most machine washable yarns in today’s market.
20% of the yarn contents is recycled nylon which applies strength to the yarn. For the first time ISAGER uses a synthetic fiber in a yarn, but it was impossible to find a yarn in natural fibres only that offered
softness and comfort, and at the same time was strong enough to offer the durabiliy required for a sock
yarn. The recycled nylon is an industrial waste product that normally would be disposed.
