This untreated Australian Merino is extrafine (19.5 micron) merino, a luxury fibre with an exeptionally soft handle. It is selected from longer staple fibres (around 3.5 inches/85mm, which is long for merino fibre) to reduce pilling.
The ethical sourcing of this Australian merino fibre is from farms where high standards of animal welfare are required and animal husbandry practices ensure the basic physiological and behavioural needs of the sheep are met and farms are inspected (so no mulesing!)
This non superwash Merino is a soft 4ply Merino (100%) fingering weight hand dyed in the Netherlands with professional dyes. Fingering weight 400 m / 100 gram. Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches on 3.25mm (US 3) needles. Recommended Needle Size: 2.25 - 4mm.
This yarn is luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. The yarn is as natural as possible has had no superwash treatment and is absolute without nylon! Beautiful versatile yarn suitable for hats, cowls, shawls and garments. If you want more skeins or other colorways please contact me.
