Item details

"Sand Dollar" - Here's a customer favorite colorway applied to my wonderful Holistic Merino DK base. I've hand painted these skeins in subtle shades of warm pale brown and gray, intertwined with pure ecru. This wonderfully millspun yarn is luxuriously next-to-skin soft.

I've included an image of a hat knit with this yarn. The hat's not included with your order, but if you'd like to knit one yourself you can find the pattern on at:

My Holistic Merino Yarns are made with certified Australian NewMerino® wool. NewMerino® is a certification system for Australian merino wool grown by professional wool producers using sustainable farming systems and holistic animal welfare standards. I've chosen to use wool from these farmers because of their respect and dedication to both the environment and to animal welfare.

The minimum care requirements for sheep raised on NewMerino® certified farms are:

- Freedom from thirst and hunger
- Access to adequate shelter
- Freedom to behave naturally
- Freedom from stress, pain and fear
- Prevention or treatment for injury, disease or parasite infestation
- Surgical mulesing is specifically not permitted under the NewMerino® certification program.

I believe that wool from sheep that are humanely treated fits well with Morning Bright's mission to produce yarn from happy, well cared for animals.

100% merino wool from Certified Humanely raised sheep
each skein approximately:
100 grams
240 yards
dk weight, 11 wpi

Handwash gently. Dry naturally.
