MERICASH LUX: Approximately 95g/300 yards 78/12/10 superwash Merino wool/silk/cashmere. This is a luxurious sport weight yarn, priced accordingly as the hank weights are a bit light but minimum yardage is correct.
These were kettle-dyed with navy blue, grey, spruce and black then lightly sprinkled through the water with green and blue for a light tonal speckling effect. Note that the hanks pictured are on a different base but accurately represent the colourway.
This is a buttery soft, amazingly sumptuous yarn with great stitch definition. Two hanks are yardage for a generous-sized winter shawl or scarf but it would be good for just about anything worn next to the skin. It has lovely drape, is silky soft and shiny. Over time it may develop a very slight halo.
Despite its superwash designation, please hand wash in cool water and air dry flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
