MERINOH! WORSTED: Approximately 115g/210 yards superwash Merino wool. This is a 4-ply worsted weight yarn. This is a new base from a local mill which will be replacing my other worsted bases.
These were kettle-dyed a very bright yellow-green then glazed inconsistently with a chestnut brown. They were speckled a little bit on a green area with hot pink, fuchsia, magenta and bright green. There are some dark brown splotches. They are variegated and each hank is unique, even from the same batch. The colour reminds me of a Bosc pear. A few bases are pictured to show variations. Please alternate hanks if using more than one for a more consistent fabric.
This is a lovely, sturdy base which 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 treated, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
