This luxurious merino and silk worsted / aran weight knitting yarn, is so soft and easy to use it is a real treat for your special knitting and crochet projects.

Whichever of the subtle shades you choose, they all work together to provide a great chunky texture and are very forgiving of uneven stitches so they make an ideal DIY knitting gift for new knitters or crocheters!

80% Merino wool is not only THE softest wool you'll ever work with but it's also hypoallergenic, so it's great for those of you with skin that gets itchy & sensitive to other wools. Merino is very breathable and reacts to body temperature so you stay warm and cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. This is mixed with 20% to add strength and a subtle shine.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

100% renewable, 100% biodegradable, the wool is sourced from non mulesed sheep and uses certified shearers to ensure that the sheep are treated kindly. Removing their very heavy fleeces is not only eco friendly and sustainable but it helps to keep the sheep healthy & happy!

The wool fibers used in this yarn are untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing, which is certified to Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture to each stitch and means it can be used for weaving and felting too.

In short it is the ultimate luxury for you, your wardrobe and your home!
