Also, please let us know if you would like a different tonal for a project, as we will be able to dye this up for you at no extra charge and have it ready to ship within 48-72 hours. We know how hard it is to match skeins, even more so to do this by pictures only, so please be sure that we will do our best to help you pick your perfect match. 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. Each skein of yarn is hand dyed with professional acid dyes and treated with wool care after, for a perfect finish. As each batch is dyed by hand, there can be slight colour variations between each batch, so if you wish to purchase more than one skein for your knitting or crochet project, or require a different base, please get in touch and I will ensure each skein is from the same batch, and/or on the base required. Please also note that while we do our best to accurately capture the colour of the yarn in the picture, the colours may slightly differ due to variations in monitors and screens.It is recommended to handwash your yarn/ finished object and lay flat to dry.
