Fingering weight Peerie is smooth, strong, and full of lively bounce. Worsted spun from soft American Merino wool, this yarn’s round and springy 4-ply construction lends polish and durability to cables, lace, stockinette and textured stitches in garments and accessories – we love Peerie for socks! With a range of jewel tones, soft pastels, and neutrals, Peerie’s expansive color palette is perfect for crisp colorwork and sophisticated solids alike.

FIBER CHARACTERISTICS

The wool for Peerie comes from Merino sheep raised in Utah and Nevada. An ancient breed hailing back to 12th century Spain, the “King of Sheep’’ is renowned for supremely soft and dense finewool fleeces with lively spring, velvety luster, and superb vibrance of color when dyed. Ideal for polished sweaters and accessories, Peerie’s worsted spun construction brings smoothness and durability to this wonderfully wearable wool.

GAUGES

Peerie’s springy worsted-spun construction is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges:

  • 6¼ – 8 stitches to 1”
  • Suggested Needle: 2.75 - 3.5 mm (US 2-4)
  • Suggested Hook: 2.75 - 4 mm (C-2 - G-6)

DYE PROCESS

Peerie is spun from undyed white wool, then skein dyed after spinning into a saturated palette of solid hues that let textured stitches and cables shine, create bold colorwork, and highlight the natural luster of the wool fibers.

CARE

Peerie is a handcrafted product. For best results, we recommend alternating skeins when joining in a new skein for even color distribution.
