This listing is for one skein of Pretty in Pink recycled extra fine Italian merino wool yarn. The color is a soft pink that feels reminds me of seashells. The more sweaters that I deconstruct, the greater my respect for the Italian spinning and yarn industry. The Italians yarns are my favorite.The is an amazingly soft merino that feels great against the skin. Five skeins without any knots gives a good indication of the yarn quality. It has a very even spin. The yarn is a 2 ply fine lace weight yarn. This yarn was recycled from a lightly worn Banana Republic sweater, carefully deconstructed, wound into skeins, gently washed and dried unweighted. The photo showing the group of skeins shows all of the yarn from this sweater. Each skein is listed separately.

I am happy to wind this as a ball as a free service, please indicate if you prefer a ball or a skein during checkout. Wool yarns should always be stored in a skein without tension on the yarn. If you plan to work with the yarn right away, a center-pull ball is easiest to work from.
