Description:
Extra fine (19.5 micron) merino is used for these yarns. It feels soft and gentle against the skin. These yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extra fine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a super soft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
Soft and cushiony with a slight sheen. Knits up quickly and is ideal for last minute gifts. One hank is enough for a snuggly cowl, hat, fingerless mitts or headband. Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes. Very soft and springy. Takes up the dye well to produce deep, vibrant colours.
