I have been on the hunt for the PERFECT yarn for fulling (felting knitted items).
There is nothing more frustrating than spending time knitting or crocheting an item for felting, only to find that your yarn felts poorly, unevenly or gets terribly fuzzy!

After experimenting with a wide variety of yarns, I keep coming back to this fabulous Uruguayan Merino. It is delectably soft and lofty~ I cannot tolerate processed commercial wool next to my skin, but I have used this yarn repeatedly for mitts, hats and other wearables.

This yarn felts very easily (in minutes when tossed into a washing machine) and creates a supple fabric which is a joy to work with, and which retains the softness and almost handspun-like texture of this single ply merino.

This yarn can be used, of course, for non-felted projects, too!
But keep in mind that it does felt easily with wear and washing~ launder with cool water, gentle hand washing and a wool wash.

♥From one knitter/ felter to another, I am sure you will enjoy this yarn for felting as much as I do (it is the only one I use now!).

I have wound this yarn into a cake.
If you prefer it in a skein, let me know and I will re-skein it.

Frequently asked questions about BeneathTheRowanTree

Sizes are described for each item. If you are purchasing for a specific use or space, please be sure to measure before ordering. As each silk piece is dyed custom for you, returns and exchanges are not generally made for pieces that are their described dimensions.
Every silk item will arrive with a postcard bearing detailed information about the item and its care. Generally, treat silk like your own hair (a protein fiber)~ wash gently in warm to cool water with a gentle shampoo or dish soap and hang to dry. Avoid laundry detergent. Direct sunlight (ie on a clothesline) can quickly damage silk. Tumble dry low for a brief time, best of all~ press with a warm iron while damp.
