Be So Soulful Yarn is #2 fine, sock weight yarn. 87% bamboo, 13% Sorona and hand dyed with low immersion dyeing techiques. Each 4oz center pull ball has 380 yards.
Sorona an eco-efficient performance fiber. We use it in place of nylon in our sock yarn because of its enormous benefits including the fact It is based from corn and not petroleum – giving it a significantly reduced carbon footprint compared to nylon. Sorona adds stretch to the yarn and makes it perfect for socks! Sorona is extremely soft yet extremely durable. Sonora is insulating, quick dry, and It adds a loftiness to the bamboo. Bamboo is anti-microbial, moisture wicking and cool. We blend these two fibers together to create a fantastic sock yarn.
Be So Soulful Yarn is also machine washable and dry-able on gentle and low heat settings. As with any delicate handmade item, washing with Wrapture all natural delicate was is recommended.

What kind of fiber is Sorona Yarn? Never heard of it. Is it a sheep wool? I am allergic to wool and need to know.
It is made from corn, not animals. This blog post explains what it is.
