Description
Affordable luxury. Extrafine superwash merino wool is blended with cashmere for a supersoft, plump yarn with next to the skin softness. Nylon is added for durability. Perfect for luxurious jumpers, socks, gloves and shawls. Takes up the dye well to produce vibrant, intense colours.
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.

1 x 100gm hank = 100gms total
