This listing is for one 100g braid of glorious, luxurious Optim merino that has been hand painted.
Optim merino is one of the most ultimate luxury fibers available. It is between 12 and 14 microns, and feels very similar to angora rabbit fiber in terms of softness.
Optim wool is created when regular merino is stretched, causing the fibers to thin out and become finer than they once were. This process also causes the wool to become superwash, which means it will not wet felt (but can still be needle felted). This creates an extremely easy to dye fiber without the hassle of worrying about it felting the way you would with normal super fine fibers. It also makes care significantly easier.
This is one of my absolute favorite fibers to work with.
