Yama Merino Chunky is super squishy and plump, dyed in layers of many colours..with that perfect hat in mind or a cosy Ursa sweater (design by Jacqueline Cieslak on Ravelry). Approx. gauge is 14sts x 20rows = 10x10cm on 5.5mm knitting needles (see thumbnail).
Each batch and colourway of Yama Merino Chunky is unique and cannot be repeated the same, please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project and remember to alternate skeins when knitting larger pieces.
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.
Please note that no refund calculations will be done on multiple order shipping costs.
This is a limited edition batch. The yarn base is produced from fully traceable organically grown fleeces, the finest produced from the Falkland Islands, South Atlantic. Spun in the UK.
Yama Falkland Merino & Mulberry Silk is a a luxurious, silky soft, plump non-superwash yarn. Warm yet light, I recommend knitting a cosy shawl, scarf or hat.
Please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project and remember to alternate skeins when working on larger pieces of fabric. Note that the skeins you receive may not be the identical skeins from the photograph.
Remember that untreated wool felts when suddenly exposed to high temperatures and/or agitated. Soak the garment in cool water with a drop or two of gentle soap. Do not wring or scrub. Rinse in clean water - a drop of essential oil can be added. Press the garment in a towel to get most of the water out and dry flat.
Please note that shipping costs paid when placing multiple orders are non-refundable.
"Colour and creating has always been part of my life, from my colouring-in books and crayons as a little girl to studying design and working as graphic designer for more than a decade. Over the last few years I have fallen in love with the hands-on, grounding approach of creating with wool. This has become my every day adventure - whether I spin and weave, knit or crochet, dye yarn and fibre or card and blend fibre for spinning and felting - I always have wool in my hands!"
