MERIYAK LUX: Approximately 100g/438 yards 65/20/15 superwash Merino wool/silk/yak. This is a luxurious 3-ply fingering weight yarn, medium-grey when it’s undyed.

These were kettle dyed with hanks stacked between washes of concentrated lime, teal-green and dark purple. At the end a few grains of grey were dropped in the water on each hank. Note that these are highly variegated and hanks from the same batch may be quite different in both intensity and tone even though they all share the same colours, please alternate hanks if using more than one. The yak base is brown-grey prior to dyeing, so the overall finished colourway is darker and more “dramatic” than a plain merino base. 

This is a buttery soft, truly sumptuous yarn with great stitch definition, which makes just about any project extra-gorgeous. It’s wonderful next-to-skin and it has lovely smoosh, drape and is silky soft and shiny. The base is medium-grey to begin with so colourways dye a little darker and deeper than on ivory bases.

Despite its superwash designation, PLEASE hand wash in cool water and air dry flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
