MERINOH! DK: Approximately 100g/243 yards of superwash Merino wool. This is a 3-ply DK weight yarn.

 These were kettle-dyed In a crowded pot first a pale golden brown then a medium cool brown and finally a medium bright purple. They were finished with a bit of brown, caramel and violet speckles. 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. While all hanks share the same colours, each is unique so please alternate hanks if using more than one. These more randomly dyed colourways vary from batch to batch and from hank to hank within a batch. This is like a cross between Sabelle and Hullabaloo. Note that different bases are pictured to show variations.

This is a great all-round DK weight merino - soft and smooshy with a nice twist. It is hardy and lovely and would be perfect for winter accessories, sweaters, kids’ garments or a large shawl or cape.

While this is superwash, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
