What a name! This is our great new sock yarn from South West Trading Company (SWTC). SWTC is know for being innovative, and TOFUtsies lives up to that reputation. This yarn is comprised of 50% superwash wool, 25% soysilk, 22.5% cotton, and 2.5% chitin. Chitin is a fibre made from shrimp and crab shell, that has antibacterial properties.

TOFUtsies is variegated and comes in 15 wonderful color combinations. We just received our sampler packet, 2 skeins of each color. This yarn is so soft, we immediately thought we should order more. We will have more stock as soon as we receive our next shipment. Here are pictures of the colors, click on the pictures for a larger look.
