This stunning colorway is perfect for casual or dressy garments and accessories. It can be worn by any age or gender. Goes beautifully with Oh, Wine Knot! and Winter Solstice! This yarn is technically an Aran weight but it's Worsted Spun, meaning that the fibers were combed and spun aligned all in the same direction. The advantages of this is that this yarn doesn't bloom as lofty and can therefore be treated like a worsted weight. It also means that there is less pilling with beautiful drape and stitch definition. It's perfect for cables and lacework will be more open and block better than a fluffier woolen spun yarn. It is 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino., 100g, 166m/181yards. Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle, lay flat to dry. As always, we recommend hand washing to prolong the wear and beauty of the yarn.
