A very soft yarn from 19.5 micron Australian Superwash Merino wool from non mulesed sheep. Spun in Italy, the high twist gives lovely stitch definition and helps prevent pilling in softer yarns. Beautiful for garments worn next to the skin such as tops, baby clothes, socks, shawls, scarves, gloves and hats etc. This is a very versatile yarn.
Care - Although this is a superwash yarn, we recommend that all our hand-dyed yarns are hand washed in cool water and dried flat for best care.
A message from the mill where we buy this yarn base:
Extra fine (19.5 micron) merino is used for these yarns. It feels soft and gentle against the skin but is also strong and durable for good wearing properties. Its natural elasticity allows garments to stretch then return to their original shape. Merino is highly breathable, wicking away moisture from the body, helping you stay warm in cool weather and cool in warm weather. Naturally antimicrobial. These yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel.
None of our types have been sourced from farms that employ the Mulesing system.
