This is a delicate light fingering weight yarn that has a soft halo once knitted or crocheted. This softly spun single knits up to be a strong yet soft fabric.I see dreamy soft short sleeved cardigans and tops, cosy long sleeved sweaters, snuggley scarves and shawls and I also think this could also be knit on a tighter gauge for socks, probably on a 2.25mm.

Care - Handwash only. This yarn is a Superwash Merino however the mill advises that with the short fibres from the Yak, this is yarn should be hand washed gently in cool to warm water. We recommend that all our hand dyed yarns are hand washed in cool or tepid water and dried flat for best care.
Small batches hand-dyed in our studio located in Brisbane, Australia. We try to represent colourways as accurately as possible in our product photos. Individual skeins may vary slightly and we recommend you alternate between skeins every few rows on larger projects. Please ensure you buy enough to finish your project as future dye lots may have subtle differences.
