80% Superwash Merino 10% Cashmere 10% Nylon Yarn
350m per 100gm hank
Extra fine superwash merino wool is blended with cashmere for a super soft, 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 extra fine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a super soft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
