Two plush skeins of Superfine Merino yarn; extra soft at 19 microns and a great choice for next to skin items. They have been hand dyed in shades of purple, red, and blue, and would make a cozy knitted shawl or other next-to-skin garment. Alternately, use it as weft on your loom for a beautiful fabric that you can fashion into other garments. Makes a great gift for a knitter, crocheter, or weaver. This yarn felts beautifully, too.

Merino sheep are hardy and thrive in environments which are much too harsh for other domesticated sheep breeds. They are well suited to the high altitudes and mountainous landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island high country, where temperatures can range from 35°C in summer to -15°C in winter. Merino is a breed of sheep famous for its fine, soft wool, and is the standard to which all other fibers are compared.

This listing is for two skeins of DK weight yarn as shown, measuring a total of 557 yards.

This yarn was spun on my Lendrum ST wheel in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.

This yarn will felt, so if that's not your intention, be sure to handwash your finished garment gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

If you would like it in a center pull ball, please let me know during checkout.
