100% Superwash Merino

Hand dyed in small batches using color-fast professional dyes. Smooth and soft, a treat to knit. Spun with a tight twist for great stitch definition and better resistance to pilling. Great for socks, lace work and children’s garments.

May 2018 note: We are now buying this base yarn from two different suppliers … the original is 428 yards/100g, and the new one is 400 yards/100g (just the tiniest bit plumper). They can be used interchangeably, knit to the same gauge, and visually look the same. Your skeins will be clearly marked with weight & yardage.
