This yarn is an beautiful blend of Australian cotton and Australian superfine merino.
We select both fibres carefully to provide this yarn with a super-soft luxurious feel. The cotton brings a gorgeous drape, whilst the merino gives a loftiness and softness that is unparalleled.
We have designed this yarn by bringing both fibres together during the process to create this lovely blend. The very method of blending has helped to create a degree of unevenness in the dyeing process to help to create a more unique product. Every skein has been hand dyed to maintain that handcrafted, artisan feel.
Our merino is from Ambleside Merino. It is gorgeously soft with amazing comfort and elasticity. The entire journey of this merino is only 225 kms from farm to yarn. It is a superfine, not super-washed, yarn – therefore, as environmentally friendly as a yarn can be.
The cotton has sourced from Australia’s rich cotton growing districts of NSW and Queensland before travelling south to our mill.
The wool has been scoured to remove the lanolin, but it is not carbonised. It means that it is better for for you and the environment.
All of our yarns are semi-worsted.
Our solar system supplies most of the electricity for our processing.
We want to take care of our property, our land and our animals. And we strongly believe in sustainability.
We recommend that you purchase sufficient product for your project. There can be variations between batches.
All of our products are made with love. Please handle with care!
