100% merino wool tweed 4ply (sock) (100g) [400m]
About this yarn:
A bouncy 4ply, sock weight yarn with 400m to the skein, this yarn hides a magic secret!
With 2 ends (strands) of non-superwash merino and one of superwash merino, when dyed it will create a fabulous tweedy effect. This is because the superwash and non-superwash ends take the colour differently. So even a simple, solid-colour dye will produce a beautiful tonal effect!
This versatile yarn is perfect for socks and will make super shawls and wraps. It will also make gorgeous tops and light sweaters.
400m per 100g
We suggest needle sizes:
We wash our yarns by hand in warm water with gentle, woolsafe pH neutral wash liquid. Rinse carefully in warm water then squeeze excess water out by hand. Do not wring. Roll in a clean, lint-free towel if required to remove excess moisture and leave to dry out of direct sunlight in a warm place. Do not dry over a radiator or with direct heat.
‘This yarn is so popular on my workshops. Students are always surprised to see how just the difference between superwash and non-superwash yarns can change the colourway’.
