About this Yarn
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for that next-to-skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durability.
The main factor for determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibers. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a super soft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any project (scarves, sweaters, etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as hats and gloves.
