This 16 micron merino yarn feels just like cashmere! But without the price tag. We recommend it for shawls and baby items, but if you wish to knit it into a garment, we would recommend a tighter gauge to prolong the life of your item and avoid bobbles. It is extra fine after all!
Although I recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.
As with other hand dyed yarns, I would recommend alternating skeins every two rows or so.
I care deeply about the environment and am aware of the effects that chemicals can have on it, so I make every effort to exhaust all dyes in the dyebath so that no nasties go down the plughole. It is not always possible to exhaust *all* the dye, all the time, especially with certain dyeing techniques, so if you are intending on using your yarn for colourwork or with paler colours it pays to give it a wash first, just to be sure.
I try to ensure all colours look true on my monitor, but let’s face it, we know they vary, so if you’re unsure about a particular colourway please get in touch!
