Description
Our first yarn to be spun using biodegradable nylon. Eco-friendly and durable.
A new innovation in fibre technology, biodegradable nylon breaks down completely and produces a much lower environmental impact than regular nylon. Unlike regular nylon, that takes decades to decompose, biodegradable nylon takes only about five years to break down completely under landfill conditions. Biodegradable nylon does not decompose during standard use and is just as strong and durable as regular nylon until it is disposed of to landfill.
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little biodegradable 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.
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.
