Finito is a special treat indeed - we seek out the absolute finest Uruguayan merino that we can buy (usually only in limited quantities each year!). The individual fibers are nearly as fine as cashmere, and the finished 2-ply fingering-weight yarn has a downy halo of absolute luxury- truly a joy to knit and wear!
Great for: Shawls, scarves, accessories, lace, textured stitches, lightweight garments, luxurious gifts.
In this yarn, no two skeins are exactly the same. That is why we recommend working with two balls in parallel at the same time and alternating every few rows for a more even color distribution.
Hand dyed with professional colors for wool and silk
Please note: hand dyeings are always unique.
With this yarn in particular, the colors can vary greatly, even if they come from the same dye bath.
For larger knitting pieces I therefore recommend to work with 2 skeins alternately at the same time, in order to ensure a more evenly knitting pattern.
The colors may differ slightly from the original, depending on the monitor display.
