MERINOH! 8-PLY: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash Merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed with violet, purple, vermillion, scarlet, rust, black and bordeaux, resulting in a bright, tonal, slightly variegated yarn in memory of His Royal Purpleness! Note that these hanks have the odd spot of violet and/or black. Note that the yarn shown is a different base but accurately 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, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture and maximum gorgeousness.
