Yama Merino Linen Singles is a soft single ply, fingering weight yarn with rustic appeal. Popular for hats, shawls and sweaters. Hold together with a strand of KidSilk for a luxuriously soft fabric or hold double for colourwork and marling projects in combination with Merino Linen Worsted.

Dye batches vary, please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project. There are also variation within batches, please remember to alternate skeins when working on larger pieces of fabric. Variegated skeins take more effort to produce and are charged for a little extra.

Texture : 1 ply
Skein Weight : 100 - 110gram

Care Instructions: Garments can be machine washed on a gentle cycle however I recommend hand washing in cool water. Soak in a wool wash and rinse in clean water with a drop of essential oil. Roll in a towel to get the water out and dry flat.

Note that the darker saturated colourways can give off some residual dye on the hands while knitting, this is called “crocking”, read about it on the “Care Instructions” page under Info in the main menu.
