This hand spun yarn was spun by me from a dyed roving of super wash merino wool. It is absolutely next to the skin soft.
It is a light weight 2 ply yarn spun into a sport weight yarn. The weight is close to 1600 yards per pound. Only 4 skeins are available at this posting.
The emerald green roving was spot dyed. Some parts of the yarns are darker than others. This gives the yarn a certain liveliness to the color.
This yarn is super wash. Supposedly it will not felt or shrink when washed. I would still handle it like any precious hand knit garment. It is suitable for scarves or next to the skin wear or my favorite, color work knitting.
