MERINOH! 8-PLY: Approximately 100g/218 yards superwash Merino wool. This is an 8-ply worsted weight yarn.
These were kettle dyed a tonal grey base, overdyed with a medium reddish-brown and further overdyed with a dark brown. Finally, it was speckled through the water with red-brown, dark brown and grey for a hazy speckled effect. While the hanks all share the same colours each is unique, please alternate if using more than one. Different bases are pictured to show variations.
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?
Despite its superwash designation, please hand wash in cool water and air dry flat to maintain optimum colour and texture.
