Silky Merino DK- a wonderfully soft, silky shiny yarn of the noble class - Superwash equipped.
Great for: for anything that wants to be worn next to the skin.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
Hand dyed with professional colors for wool and silk
Please note: hand dyeings are always unique. Even within several skeins of a dye lot small deviations are possible. With larger knitting pieces I recommend to work with 2 skeins alternately to ensure a more evenly knitting pattern.
The colors may differ slightly from the original, depending on the monitor display.
