Recommended care: Although this is a Superwash Merino we recommend hand washing cool to preserve the best of the yarn and colour due to the Yak content, use a gentle detergent or specific wool wash. Do not bleach. Do not wring out, do not tumble dry.
Perfect for all times of year this classic semi-solid sage green plays nicely with others and is ideal for colourwork yet is strong enough to be the star of the show in a single colour project. It is our second featured classic colour on this ideal cold weather yarn. The base is a luxurious blend of Merino, Silk and Yak that provides a wonderful mix of softness, lustre, warmth and drape. Ideal for next to skin garments, jumpers, cardigans and shawls. This beautiful base has become one of our favourites for winter warmers you can’t help but touch.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
