Quantity Available:     1 only

This yarn is shades of purple, red, orange and yellow.

This listing is for one two-ply skein, weighing 4.6 ounces., spun at an average of 1460 ypp (yards per pound), a fine sport weight. These 420 yards wrap at about 15-18. This dyed Merino is sourced from Skacel.

Merino is the standard by which the fineness of wool is graded and is among the softest fleeces in the world. It’s an old breed, originally brought to the Iberian peninsula in the 12th or 13th century. Being small bodied, it is grown mostly for its exquisite wool. The staple is crimpy and shorter than some other popular breeds, but makes up for that in its legendary softness.

My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
