filigree pure merino

This merino yarn is a four ply, yet it is less than half the thickness of the Artisan Sock. I am so pleased with the twist on this lace yarn - not too tight, yet, not splitty. It’s quite nice to work with. It’s also a superwash, so while it’s doubtful you’d ever machine wash a shawl or other lacy little thing, it’s nice to know it won’t come out in a felted heap if that does accidentally happen.

  • 100% superwash merino
  • 1200 yards, 160 grams (skeins put up by yardage, weight may have slight variance.)
  • 3-5 stitches per inch
  • US size 3-5 needle

Recommended care:

Handwash in tepid water. Lay flat to dry. Although this yarn has a high superwash merino content, we do not recommend
machine washing or drying.
