About this Yarn
Extrafine (19.5 microns) merino is used to produce a luxury yarn that feels soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun from extra-long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. 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.
A very versatile yarn, it can be used for socks, shawls, wraps, mittens, and light jumpers.
Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, use mild detergent, do not bleach, dry flat away from direct sunlight.
