This is a New Zealand made, 4-ply sock yarn spun from 80% machine-washable merino wool and 20% nylon for sockability. It feels yummy and squishy and knits altogether very nicely. At 385m per 100g skein it is enough for a pair of socks, or gloves or a long scarf, or a shawl, or whatever you fancy. This is one of my favourite colourways: several greens, salmony red, copper, pink, grey and black. What an odd combination, but I do think it works well.
Since this yarn – but not necessarily this colourway – will make it into my permanent repertory, please let me know if you need more for a larger garment. Custom dyes take a little time, but are the same price.
The "small" print:
My hand-dyed yarns are non-repeatable runs, which means once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Please hand wash your yarn with care. Wool labeled “superwash” you can cold machine wash. I take great care to achieve beautiful results that are lightfast and colourfast, but sometimes there is a tiny amount of colour running out of the wool at first, so wash your item separately and keep it away from other items at all times while wet. After a few washes the water should run clear.
I take commissions.
Please contact me if you live outside of New Zealand.
I will combine postage when possible.
When choosing colours please keep in mind that not all monitors show colours the same.
If you’re not satisfied with your wool you can return it to me in original condition, i. e. with label attached and at your own cost in exchange for different wool or a refund.
I’m a great believer in avoiding waste, and in recycling. That’s why I use recycled packaging materials wherever possible.
If you’re happy with your wool, please let me know and don’t forget to place feedback.
