100% Australian Merino. Extrafine (19.5 microns). This is a non-superwash yarn.
Merino is used for these yarns so they feel soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness. Spun in Italy.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
A very versatile yarn, it can be used for shawls, wraps, mittens and jumpers. Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes.
