Description

4ply Fleck – Merlot: 100gram skeins of soft 4ply merino wool yarn with dark donegal nepps, hand-dyed in a delicious deep burgundy and golden brown colourway. A soft but durable yarn, suitable for next-to-skin knitting and crochet projects such as shawls, hats, socks, etc. This is a repeatable colourway, hand dyed in Cornwall.

Merino is the softest wool yarn available, and is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. Merino sheep need to be shorn at least once a year because their wool does not stop growing.
The donegal nepps are small clusters of fibres spun into the base yarn when it is produced. They resist the dyes and add texture and visual interest to the finished yarn.

– Weight: approx. 100gram (price is per skein)
– Yarn: 75% superwash Merino, 15% Donegal Nep
– Type: 4ply, fingering, sock
– Length: approx. 400 metres ~ 436 yards
– Recommended needle size: 2-4mm
– Care: Gentle handwash recommended, as with all hand-dyed yarns.
