Amble is everything that you’d want from a sock yarn; soft and  comfortable, yet it’s strong enough to withstand lots of wear thanks to  the recycled nylon in this blend. An eco-friendly Easy-wash treatment is used to make Amble machine-washable and easy to care for too. 

Pattern Suggestions:
Mind Garden - socks with a little lace
Mariesi - socks with a bit of cable
Miss Mason Socks - free pattern with simple cuff detail
Pop Spots - shawl with three colors
A little bit of Sunshine - colorwork hat 

Impact:
Amble has been designed to be easy on  the environment. Their Easy-wash is a trademarked name that refers to a  process used to make the wool and alpaca fibers in Amble machine  washable without shrinking. The Easy-wash method is chlorine-free and  AOX-free, making it the best environmental choice for producing  machine-washable wool.
Nylon fiber is not easily biodegradable.  However, it has strength qualities that give yarns and the socks more  durability. The recycled nylon used in Amble sock yarn comes from  leftover industrial waste of processing nylon, thereby diverting waste  from landfills, and using fewer production resources like water and  fossil fuels than virgin nylon.
