More on Regia

Okay a bit of things I have learned:

Regia is a Coats product made in Denmark. It has several different varieties under each grouping....the fädig line (3,4,&6) each have a couple of subcatagories-usually based on the coloring styles.

I have two types of Regia now....and I'm glad.

The Bamboo Color which I just got....45% bamboo, 40% Virgin Wool (which they translated to "New Wool" on the label), 15% Polyamide. It is pretty soft, it has kind of a funny smell (but that could be due to shipping), it has a nice feel to it--can't wait to use it.

The first one I got is the Regia 4fädig Notion Color---boy did it take me a while to find the code for that double-dotted a, let me tell you!--it is 75% Virgin Wool, 25%Polyamide. Its made for socks but damn is it scratchy! The colors are nice and bright, but its so scratchy I'm almost afraid to work with it....Woolease nearly cuts my skin, I hate to think what this will do. Its making my feet itch just thinking of it as a pair of socks.

If you are interested in their other yarns, and can understand or muddlethru danish you can go to the Regia yarn webpage.

Not that it is the softest yarn on the planet, but I do find that Regia does get better with washing. Maybe you could try washing a swatch and see if it gets better?
