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.
