Yama 100% Merino Braids (Spinning Fibre) per 100gram

Yama 100% Merino Braids are meticulously hand dyed for a magical spinning experience. 19-20micron of silky soft South African Merino fibre (superwash or non-superwash as indicated).

Colourways will not be repeated exactly the same. Note that the braids you receive may not be the identical braids shown in the photograph. Note that when shipping unspun fibre braids, the volume is larger than the actual mass. Shipping charges will be higher to ship a fibre braid vs a skein of yarn of the same weight.

Composition : 100% Merino
South African Merino wool is mulesing free

Care Instructions: I recommend hand washing in cool water for skeins and garments created from the fibre spun up. 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. Do not agitate non-superwash fibers.

IMPORTANT: Prices do not include VAT. Under the new EU VAT rule for e-commerce, customers in EU countries can expect to pay VAT on arrival of their parcels.

Yama 100% Merino Soft Sock

Yama Soft Sock is a beautiful, bouncy 100% Merino yarn. Softly twisted, 2 ply texture, perfect for sweater knitting. As soft as singles but with a little more structure and better stitch definition. Also suitable for hats and shawls, perhaps a little too soft for workhorse socks. Tip! Use Soft Sock & Merino Linen Singles or 100% Merino Singles together in one project for subtle textural variation, add some KidSilk for even more fun!

Dye batches vary and there may be variations within batches too ~ please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project and 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. Note that the skeins you receive may not be the identical skeins shown in the photograph.

South African Merino wool is mulesing free
Texture : 2 ply (2 strands twisted together)
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.
