Austermann Step 4 Classic is a sock yarn classic whose popularity remains year after year. The four-strand thread is also much more than high-quality and durable. The yarn is treated with aloe vera and jojoba extract, which makes it soft and gentle on the skin, pleasant to hold and very wonderful to knit. The effect of the treatment lasts up to 40 washes. A 100 gram ball has 420 meters of yarn, so one ball can make a pair of socks for even a bigger foot. One round is enough for an adult's pair of socks up to size 46, for a woman's size M sweater, reserve about 4-5 rounds of yarn. Due to its strength, Step is also suitable for machine knitting.

The yarn is easy to care for as it can be washed in the machine using the wool washing program. Step sock yarn has been machine-washable with a new type of ecological EXP method. EXP is also the first wool quality process in the world that meets the strict criteria of Bluesign® and GOTS standards, and is Eco-Tex compliant. The name EXP comes from the word "EX-Pollution", which means a treatment process to minimize polluting the environment. What makes the yarn ecological is that the anti-felt treatment EXP is completely chlorine-free.
