This is a worsted-spun, 17 micron merino yarn. It comes in 13 colours, all inspired by the landscape where the wool is grown: the high midlands of Tasmania. It is extremely soft and elastic, perfect for next-to-skin garments and for babies. The yarn has great stitch definition, and while it will felt, it doesn’t do so just by looking at it sideways--so you have some room to manoeuvre in washing and blocking. If you WANT it to felt, it turns into a wonderfully soft, dense fabric, but you do have to work at it!

Buy it online at http://whitegumwool.com.au or from:
The Stash Cupboard or the Salamanca Wool Shop in Hobart, The Tasmanian Wool Centre in Ross, or Holland Road Yarn Company in Petone (near Wellington) NZ.

Independent dyers using this as a base include Augustbird, Anais Yarn, Colour by me/tres/, Miss Jane Knits, Nunnaba and Gradient NZ

Emma Gregory is an independent registered knitter whose yarn of choice is White Gum Wool.
