50% Fine Merino, 50% Fine Superwash Merino 4 oz. skein, 3 ply, 250 yds.
Our Special Edition Hand-Painted Merino yarn is perfect for a splash of colour in colourwork, a bold single skein project or beautiful brioche stitches. These yarns are mixed with Grey Superwash Merino to create a tweed effect, the overdyed to create beautifully heathered yarns. When working with more than one ball, like when making a sweater or blanket, be sure to work with 2 balls at the same time, otherwise you may see a difference between sections when you attach a new skein.
Please Note: Every skein of our handpainted yarn is unique and each run may be different. If you like a particular colourway, don't hesitate to buy enough for your project for best results.
Care Instructions - Hand wash finished item in cool water (and a high quality fibre rinse if necessary) and lay flat to dry. Do not Machine Wash or Dry.
