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.
