MERIYAK LUX: Approximately 100g/438 yards 65/20/15 superwash Merino wool/silk/yak. This is a luxurious 3-ply fingering weight yarn, medium-grey when it’s undyed.

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. Note that this is a variegated colourway and each hank is slightly different, please alternate hanks if using more than one.

This is a buttery soft, truly sumptuous yarn with great stitch definition, which makes just about any project extra-gorgeous. It’s wonderful next-to-skin and it has lovely smoosh, drape and is silky soft and shiny. The base is medium-grey to begin with so colourways dye a little darker and deeper than on ivory bases.

Despite its superwash designation, PLEASE hand wash in cool water and air dry flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
