Due to supply issues with our previous spinner we have switched prodction to a different mill. We still use the same high quality 19.5 micron merino fibre and a top quality spinner. However, this new mill does not steam the yarn as much before packing so you may notice that the undyed yarn looks skinnier and the twist is a little uneven in places. This is normal and the yarn will relax and expand when it is dyed and/or washed to produce a plump and even yarn. This yarn requires no different treatment before dyeing so prepare it as you usually would.
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.
A very versatile yarn, it can be used for shawls, wraps, mittens, socks and light jumpers. 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.
