100g and 220 metres per skein.

3.53oz and 241 yards per skein.

5.5 sts = 1" on US 5, 3.75 mm needles.

100% merino wool

  • The fibre is sourced from an organic single farm in Munich and spun in a local mill in the Chiemgau region near by. The minimal processing means this is a chance to experience knitting or crocheting with merino, as close as possible in character to how it comes off the sheep. If you've only ever used a superwash merino its liveliness will be a revelation. 

    Eco friendly, ethical and regional. The sheep are raised close to Munich, the yarn spun, processed and dyed in Bavaria.

  • Gentle hand wash, lay flat to dry.

    Some of our stock is from the original batch of yarn which hadn't been washed after spinning, the water may be a little dirty the first time you wash it. After that first bath it will bloom into an incredible, cushy fabric.
