MERINOH! 8-PLY: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a tonal gold then washed with rust, orange, tawny brown and dark brown, all with a little bit of hazy speckling of orange and brown.
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.
