"Lemon Drop" - 100% SW Merino singles - sock/4ply weight
in "Lemon Drop" colourway.
Extrafine (19.5 microns) merino is used to produce a luxury yarn that feels soft and gentle against the skin. The yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness.
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.
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. Takes up the dye well to produce deep, vibrant colours.
