This wonderfully soft yarn comes from South Africa. It is single twisted (1 ply) and is ideal for shawls or garments and is very soft and supple in the hand. The yarn consists of 90% Merino Superwash and 10% Linen. It has a run length of 360 metres per 100 grams.
When knitting larger pieces, I recommend knitting the yarn skeins alternately to get an even knitted pattern in the colour distribution.
The yarn was dyed with acid dyes and then cold hand washed and rinsed. Bleeding of the colour can still occur, especially with dark colours. I recommend washing the yarn or the resulting knitted piece again separately. If you are making multi-coloured knits with dark and light colours, I recommend making a sample beforehand and washing it cold by hand. The use of a colour detergent or fabric softener is not recommended.
Each skein is unique and lovingly hand-dyed - no two skeins are alike.
We have used a high quality SLR camera for the pictorial representation. It is important to me that the yarns are correctly coloured. However, we cannot give any guarantee for colour deviations between the monitor and the original product. We have refrained from post-processing.
