DK Superwash Extrafine (19.5 micron) Merino Wool Yarn 5 x 100g Pack

DK Superwash Extrafine (19.5 micron) Merino Wool Yarn  5 x 100g Pack

Ref: MERGH0925

DK Weight (approx. 4/8Nm)

100% Superwash Merino.

Due to supply issues with our previous spinner we have switched prodction to a different mill. We still use the same high quality 19.5 micron merino fibre and a top quality spinner. However, this new mill does not steam the yarn as much before packing so you may notice that the undyed yarn looks skinnier and the twist is a little uneven in places. This is normal and the yarn will relax and expand when it is dyed and/or washed to produce a plump and even yarn. This yarn requires no different treatment before dyeing so prepare it as you usually would.

Extrafine (19.5 microns) merino is used for these yarns so they feel soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun 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 shawls, wraps, mittens and 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.
