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 lace work, the sky is the limit. Once washed and blocked, this sophisticated merino yarn has an amazing drape, perfect for small accessories like a shawl.
Please note that this was a large batch of 50 skeins so due to how this colourway is dyed, please expect some variation in the yarns.
