Hand dyed yarn on our "Aussie Stardust Magic" base - 60% SW Extra Fine Merino, 10% Alpaca, 26% Nylon, 4% Lurex in the "Western Reaches" from our Star Wars Galaxies inspired trio.100g / 250m This base is one of our locally sourced bases and the mix of merino and alpaca makes this base extra scrumptious.The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. A very versatile yarn, it can be used for socks, shawls, wraps, mittens and light jumpers. Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes. 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.
