MERINOH! 8-PLY: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash Merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a bright mottled pink/magenta/hot pink using all my bright pink dyes. Then they were speckled with fuchsia, hot pink, bordeaux, yellow, red, caramel and a bit of grey. 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. Two socks knit from the same hank will not be identical. Oink Ponk you ask? My two most common typos when I am writing “pink” ;) A different base may be pictured but reasonably represents the colourway.
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 treated, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
