We absolutely love this yarn. It's a limited edition 90% Superwash Merino 10% Linen Yarn in a glorious single ply, where the linen gives it a slightly textured tweedy haze. The linen resists the acid dye which gives it a subtle halo of white linen fibers.
This yarn is ideal for summer and trans-seasonal items such as cowls, shawls and lightweight tops.
Approx. 394 yards per 100g skein.
Regarding color: I experimented with these a bit. Batch 1 is slightly darker with less of the lighter colors (marked in the photos), then batch 2 has a bit more yellow and lighter spots and is more colorful. You get to choose which one you get! Or mix it up and get some of both! They were all dyed at the same time but there will be subtle differences from skein to skein, even within the same batch.

As with all hand dyed items, we recommend hand washing your yarn/finished item in cool water and laying it flat to dry. We rinse this yarn until the water runs crystal clear, but small amounts of excess dye may rarely come off with the first couple of washings. If this happens, rest assured that it is only excess dye and should not affect the coloring of your yarn in any way. If a large amount of bleeding ever occurs with any of our items, please contact us so we can make it right.
