This yarn is on a base of extrafine merino, spun as a single plump ply. It isn't a hardwearing sock-type yarn, but it is excruciatingly soft at 19.5 microns. It's of a comperable softness to good cashmere. It would make amazing shawls, cowls, or other next to skin items. It's got a soft, pearly lustre you don't see on plyed yarns
100g gives 400 metres of yarn, easily enough for a shawlette.
Just a note on the colour, I know everyone knows, but digital cameras plus your monitor can affect the colour on screen. I sometimes find that light colours are bleached or paled out, so expect this to be about 10% darker than you imagine!
I aim to post the day after payment has cleared, so you should get your items fairly quickly, dependent on the service and where you are in the world. For large items, if you would like tracked or a special delivery please contact me before the purchase for a quote – I’m sure we can arrange something that will suit!
Please pay as soon as you can; if you’re having any trouble with paying, pricing, shipping, or anything else, just drop me a line and I’ll be happy to help.
If it's been a few days from the purchase date and I've not yet received a payment then I'll contact you to make sure everything is all right. If , by three days after that contact attempt I don’t receive a message, I will cancel the purchase and relist the item.
Returns & exchanges
If you do want to return a item, please contact me first. We may be able to sort it out together. However, if there is no option but to return the item/s I will refund you by the method of payment in which you paid me, once I have received the items back in the condition in which I sent them. Shipping costs will not be refunded.
I'm afraid I don't routinely do custom orders due to high demands on my time from regular dyeing, and the difficulty of reproducing exact skeins or colours.
