The perfect summer yarn.

It contains 70% superfine merino and 30% linen and is a 2-strand construction.

At ~460m this yarn is close to an Australian 3ply or light Firngering weight.

The yarn is slightly heathered. When the yarn was dyed the flax didn’t take on the dye as well as the merino which therefor give the yarn a slightly heathered look - apart from the natural, which is undyed.

Please note, there can be some vegetable matter in the yarn which is due to the following:
our merino has not been carbonised (process which breaks down vegetable matter using acid)
We have a semi-worsted spinning system - no comb
