Sport Weight Superwash Extrafine (19.5micron) Merino Wool Yarn 5 x 100gm Pack.

Sport Weight Superwash Extrafine (19.5micron) Merino Wool Yarn 5 x 100gm Pack.


Sport Weight (approx. 4/12nm)
100% Superwash Merino Wool Yarn.

Due to supply issues with our previous spinner we have switched production to a different mill. We still use the same high quality 19.5 micron merino fibre and a top quality spinner and the yarn is spun to the same specifications. However, natural variations in the fibres and different spinning machinery can mean that you may notice a slight difference from earlier batches. This yarn requires no different treatment before dyeing so prepare it as you usually would.

Extrafine (19.5 microns) merino is used to produce a luxury yarn that feels soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness.

The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.

A very versatile yarn, it can be used for socks, shawls, wraps, mittens and light jumpers. Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes. Takes up the dye well to produce deep, vibrant colours.
