MERINOH! 8-PLY: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash Merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a variegated blue-turquoise base with a lot of lime green, then speckled and spotted with bordeaux and vermillion and a few spots of black. Note that this is a highly variegated colourway and each hank is slightly different, as is each batch of this 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.
