Description

If you are looking for an undyed skeins to dye your own yarn, or require a neutral for colourwork, then try this yarn out.

I post all yarn as a skein (a loop of yarn) as shown in the main image.  In order to use your yarn, it will need to be wound into a ball or a cake to prevent it turning into a big tangle.  For that reason I offer a “caking service” which can be found on the product page.

Superwash Merino

Merino yarn is the perfect blend of softness and strength, with a luxurious feel.  Generally all of the merino I use is sourced from Argentina, Uruguay and Europe, making it non-mulesing.

All of the bases containing merino has been treated with a superwash, which not only flattens the fibres, but also makes it less prone to felting.

This means that it is possible to be machine washed, although I recommend hand washing in a wool wash solution such as Eucalan.

Depending on the intensity of colours there may be slight colour bleeding on the first wash.  Please do not tumble dry.

Needle and Hook Sizes

I recommend the following range of needles and hooks for different projects.  Swatching is certainly the best method to ensure that the fabric you create is in line with the pattern requirements, so please check your gauge.

  • Socks 3.00mm – 3.25mm
  • Sweaters 3.25mm – 4.00mm
  • Shawls 4.50mm – 5.00mm
  • Crochet hook 4.50mm – 5.50mm
  • Tunisian crochet hook 5.50mm – 7.00mm
