Yama Merino Chunky is super squishy and plump, dyed in layers of many colours..with that perfect hat in mind. There is a softly plied and a high twist version. Approx. gauge is 14sts x 20rows = 10x10cm on 5.5mm knitting needles (see thumbnail).
Dye batches do vary and skeins are limited, 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.
"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!"
