MERINOH! DK: Approximately 100g/231 yards superwash Merino wool. This is a 4-ply DK weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed with a wash of deep red followed by mahogany red, both applied in a very crowded pot which results in a mottled strike. Finally they were speckled with copper, brown, gold and bright red. 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, if you use more than one please alternate. These more randomly dyed colourways vary from batch to batch and from hank to hank within a batch. Different bases are shown but reasonably represent the colourway.
This is a great all-round DK weight merino - soft, lofty and smooshy with a nice twist, it is absolutely lovely and would be perfect for winter accessories or a large shawl or cape.
While this is superwash treated, I recommend hand washing and drying flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
