Description
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durabilty and 5% gold stellina for a subtle sparkle.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin
This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.
When dyeing yarns containing stellina too much acid and time in contact with the acid can tarnish the stellina and make it appear dull. We recommend using just enough citric acid to exhaust the dye or to use vinegar (which is less acidic than citric acid).
