Cool and calm, this pale blue laceweight 100% merino yarn was harvested from a Burberry sweater, no less! It has a delicate semi-solid colour with a soft, smooth hand. This yarn conjures to mind intricate shawls encrusted with crystal beads, luxurious cabled socks, or extra-special baby gifts...

This listing is for one 43g hank, approximately 560m. I have 186g/2430m left in total; each hank is listed separately. If you purchase the whole sweater's worth of yarn, you will also receive the original tag and care label, and I will combine the shipping cost.

Information about my yarn:

Reclaimed yarn from second-hand sweaters, to be knitted and loved again another day! I choose luxury fibres, lust-worthy colours and high-quality brands to bring you beautiful and ethical yarns. The sweaters are gently unpicked and unravelled by hand, wound into hanks and then lovingly washed, weighed and labelled. Each hank is unique, and I do not cut or trim them to 'round' out the weight - nothing is wasted. I do my best to weigh and measure yardage accurately, but please take the numbers as approximate.

Yarn too 'wavy' for you? The kinks naturally relax when the yarn is washed, but some straighten out more than others. If a yarn you like isn't straight enough for you, let me know and I will process it again for you before postage. I will also wind the hanks into cakes if you prefer.
