Shatner's Bassoon - Tia Merino - Merino single ply

Photo copyright of Brass Eye, a fkn hilarious satire show from the UK in the late 90s. Episode 2 was a report on the made-up drug Cake from Czechoslovakia, which was known to activate the part of the brain known as the Shatner's Bassoon. Cake is neon yellow.

Truth be told, this yarn base is my most favourite to dye as it takes the colour so uniquely. This single-ply merino yarn is nothing short of being pure luxury. With plenty of character, the dynamic high twist makes the yarn a little stronger but I’d definitely not recommend using this for socks as it is too delicate.

On stockinette, single ply yarns have a tendency to bias but for lacework, the sky is the limit. Once washed and blocked, this sophisticated merino yarn has an amazing drape, perfect for small accessories like a shawl.
