MERINOH! WORSTED 8-Ply: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed first with a wash of mottled green with a bit of green speckling then brown with a bit of brown speckling and a final wash of black. Grey-green with brown undertones. A little speckling with caramel, rust and mustard was added at the end. They are tonal and slightly variegated and should be alternated if more than one is used.
This is a PLUMP, SOFT and very SMOOSHY base! The multiple plies make the strand quite round and provide a slightly pebbly look which transfers very nicely into the finished garment. It would be excellent for just about any knit or crocheted item and is next-to-skin soft. I envision it as a cozy hat or scrunchy cowl, baby sweater or big cardigan - you?
While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
