Untreated sustainable DK Weight Yarn
Approx. 246 yards/ 225m per 100g
The softest untreated yarn.
A yarn that is as close to its natural origins as possible. No superwash treatment, just a wash to remove the grease and dirt from the fleece then combed for spinning. A great choice for those looking for a luxurious, non superwash, no nylon yarn.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. This base is comprised of extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
Garments made from these yarns should be washed in cool or room temperature water with minimal agitation (it is agitation and heat that causes wool to felt).
