This is a worsted-spun, 17 micron merino yarn. It comes in 18 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 stockists listed at http://www.whitegumwool.com.au/stockists/

Independent dyers using this as a base can be also be found at http://www.whitegumwool.com.au/stockists/

Care: Hand wash, cold. Dry flat. May be dry-cleaned.
