Description

This batch has been reeled locally from our cones and so still contains a little of the harmless oils used in spinning. A wash in mild soapy water or dip in the dye bath will remove these oils allowing the yarn to relax and plump up before use.
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durability.
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.
One of our best sellers. 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.
