MERINOH! Euro: Approximately 150g/822 yards superwash merino wool. This is a heavy lace weight yarn; a fine, soft six-ply base.
These were kettle-dyed a tonal blush/ecru base then glazed with a wash of brown then grey. Finally, they were speckled with golden brown and purple. The purple dye breaks a bit so there are violet and hot pink specks here and there. Note that these hanks are variegated and each is different though they share the same colours.
With lovely drape, a soft hand, a little sheen and good stitch definition, this multi-ply base functions well as a lace yarn or a fingering yarn, especially for shawls and cowls where gauge is not critical or the pattern is adaptable to the amount of yarn you have. It is also suitable for a swingy sweater, tee or baby garments.
While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
