This colour was inspired by a stunning blue malachite stone so I have dyed this yarn with various shades of blue with black speckles. Would be fantastic in a warm cosy winter sweater..
Superwash Merino Aran has a simple construction of 2/3.5nm giving 175m (191 yds) per 100g hank. Superwash Merino Aran is made with 100% superwashed merino meaning the yarn has been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore will not ‘felt’ when dyed or washed. Therefore it is a great yarn for an easy-care garment. We have used soft 21 micron merino in the yarn which is not itchy or scratchy next to the skin. Merino has a natural elasticity which helps a garment stretch yet return back to its original shape. It also has great insulating properties providing a thermal layer of warmth when needed. The wool is mulesing free and comes from South America. The yarn is 100% animal fibre and perfect for dyeing.Meterage: 175m (191) yds) per 100gTension: 18 sts x 24 rows, in 10cm (4 in), over st st, using 5mm needlesYarn Weight: AranHank Size: 100gOrigin: PeruCare Instructions: Machine washable on a wool program ideally using a wool detergent at 30⁰C or below.
