MERICASH LUX: Approximately 95g/300 yards 78/12/10 superwash Merino wool/silk/cashmere. This is a luxurious sport weight yarn, priced accordingly as the hank weights are a bit light but minimum yardage is correct.
These were kettle-dyed a base of bright yellow-green then washed with chestnut, brown and black for a mottled effect. Finally, they were speckled with navy, purple, pink, gold and turquoise. The speckles are subtle on the dark background and there is a definite khaki/gold/caramel undertone that may not be fully showing in the pictures.
This is a buttery soft, amazingly sumptuous yarn with great stitch definition. Two hanks are yardage for a generous-sized winter shawl or scarf but it would be good for just about anything worn next to the skin. It has lovely drape, is silky soft and shiny. Over time it will develop a very slight halo.
Despite its superwash designation, please hand wash in cool water and air dry flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
