The depths of the South Pacific shimmer in shades of blue, swept with kelpie greens and coloured with purple corals and pale shells. All these colours have gone into this handspun yarn, which I then spun with a Navajo ply, making a three ply yarn that still keeps the gorgeous colour transitions that I painted into it.

I love this kind of yarn, the plying technique uses a single strand of yarn, which I then 'chain' ply into three plys, it creates a yarn with a wonderful 'weight' and drape, and it really shows off the colours to their best. It feels smooth and soft, and being 100% Merino its totally next to skin wearable.

This yarn comes to you in two skeins, measuring a total of:

Length: 235.5 meters / 257.5 yards
Weight: 175grams / 6 oz
WPI: approx 14 DK - Light Worsted weight

Anything made from this yarn is going to look really beautiful, the colours are so dreamy and pretty :)

This yarn is handspun and hand dyed with love, it has its own unique character that adds something very special to your handmade woolen items. And, like every individually handspun yarn, this one needs gentle hand washing and laying flat to dry. I have photographed it as accurately as possible but please remember that everyones screen can display colors differently, so there may be a small variation in the hues.

To keep shipping costs down, whenever possible I ship my skeins flat: folded around a card, rather than in a twist, this allows me to post as 'letter post' not as a parcel (Dutch post is three times more costly for a parcel!). The yarn is tied and packed so it will arrive to you still in great condition!
