Care: Superwash

A soft 100% merino superwash yarn, 2 ply; with a tighter twist than watercolors sock yarn. Ideal for showing off stitch patterns. Very slightly heavier than your “typical” sock yarn.

PLEASE NOTE: as of RHINEBECK 2011, this yarn will have a different put-up! I am changing to a more reliable distributor for this yarn, and it will have 400 yards per 100 g, not per 4 ounces, so it will be slightly lighter. It will have the same twist and “look”, and will be even softer.
100% merino superwash, as always.

2019 update:
This yarn will no longer be represented at fiber festivals.
It is still available from LYSs such as Frame and Fiber in point pleasant, NJ, and The Spinning Room in Altamont NY.

2020 update: discontinued by the dyer.
