Touch Possum Merino yarn is lovely to knit with and very soft and warm to wear. This is a dark navy blue shade. 1 x 100g skein will knit a hat and fingerless mitten set, see Touch yarns pattern #044 4 x 100g skeins is enough yarn to knit most adult long sleeved garments. Recommended needle size 3.75mm, US 5, UK 9. Touch Possum Merino yarn knits slightly finer thank an 8ply/ double knit yarn. 100g/420m approx.
I am absolutely in love with this yarn, it is such a pleasure to work with and so incredibly soft. It's also super warm, almost too warm for Aussie conditions! Gorgeous and hard wearing, I can't recommend this yarn more highly.

This is the first time I have used this yarn and I like it. I would like to use it again on a larger project, but it is an expensive yarn, so we'll see. The yarn is soft and warm. I haven't washed it yet but it seems to have the general characteristics of the merino, so I would expect it to wash/shrink the way that merino would. The yarn breaks easily, not while you're knitting but rather at the end of your project (if you prefer to break the yarn rather than cut it). It looks good knitted, and it feels nice.

This is the most beautiful yarn I have ever knitted. It was shipped very quickly and arrived within a few days of ordering.
