MERINOH! 8-PLY: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash Merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a mottled tonal greyish navy blue and speckled with turquoise, teal, green, yellow, violet and ochre. The hanks are not twisted prior to speckling so coverage is more random. This is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is slightly different. Please alternate hanks if using more than one.
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 and maximum gorgeousness.
