Hand dyed yarn
"Stardust Magic" base - 75% SW Extra Fine Merino, 20% Nylon, ,5% Lurex
in "Rosemary Boxer" colourway.



Three plies of merino/nylon are spun with a ply of lurex for a soft, durable yarn with sparkle. We spent a lot of time working with our spinners to get the blend just right for "Stardust". There is enough lurex to add sparkle, without the scratchiness often associated with lurex yarns, and extrafine merino for a soft handle. Add nylon and you have durability too.

The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.


Each skein of yarn is hand dyed with professional acid dyes and treated with wool care after, for a perfect finish. As each batch is dyed by hand, there can be slight colour variations between each batch, so if you wish to purchase more than one skein for your knitting or crochet project, or require a different base, please get in touch and I will ensure each skein is from the same batch, and/or on the base required. Please also note that while we do our best to accurately capture the colour of the yarn in the picture, the colours may slightly differ due to variations in monitors and screens.
It is recommended to handwash your yarn/ finished object and lay flat to dry.
