A special edition yarn range, these super-soft mini skeins are spun from extra fine Merino wool. The yarn has a plump and lofty feel and is wonderful for both knitting and crochet.

DK or 'double knit' is a versatile, medium weight suitable for most types of projects. We've created a range of bold shades for these minis, perfect for accessories or for adding colourful accents to garments.

Extra fine merino is the most sought-after grade of this very special wool (18.6-19.5 microns in thickness). Its fineness makes it a little more delicate and drapey than 'fine' merino. You may notice that finished items 'grow' a little with blocking and it's important that garments are always dried flat. Our merino is farmed in Argentina and is guaranteed mulesing-free. Farmers are supported by the mill to raise their sheep under ethical farming practices. It is spun in Peru, where the fleece is first graded by highly-skilled workers to ensure consistent quality.
