Do you have a penchant for speed? Well cone yarn could be just what you are looking for-- whether you knit, crochet or weave. Because it is one continuous strand, you save time by skipping the step of having to unwrap and rewind skeins, and join in new strands. However, when you finish your project, you will need to hand wash it in hot water to remove the spinning oil. Then it will fluff up and return to its original softness, just like our skeins.
Dyers note: As you know Merino takes dye beautifully: so you can use this to make any size skein you would like.
The cone weighs 16 ounces and has about 880 yards of 2 ply wool. The gauge is usually 4 stitches per inch on a size 8 to 9 needles. But always make a swatch, everyone has a unique style, and tensions vary. This is like getting four, 220 yard skeins at your disposal.
Commercially spun from wool from our flock of purebred Merino sheep. From our farm to your hands. Raised in the USA
