This single ply, Superwash Merino is ultra soft and has a beautiful, smooth finish. Single ply yarn is known for its beautiful drape. This yarn has a nice, tight twist which will help reduces the possibility of pilling. This yarn is best used for garments (to take advantage of the drape) and will also make beautiful accessories.

Hand Wash Cold, Dry Flat. I recommend hand-washing all of my products (no matter what the manufacturer says) with a gentle wool wash. Eucalan and Soak are two of my favorites. This will extent the life of your yarn and projects!
Be sure to alternate skeins, if using more than one skein in a project. As with all hand-dyed yarn, no two are exactly alike!
Beautiful single-ply yarn. Color is rich with beautiful lighter tones. It knits up beautifully, no splitting even using Signature needles, and great stitch definition. The yarn had no bleeding at all when washed. I look forward to using more of KittyBeaKnitting's yarns!
