Makes great socks, mitts and hats! This yarn is produced with organic merino wool & recycled nylon. It is processed in an environmentally friendly manner before dyeing. Each skein is hand dyed by Riverstone, using synthetic dyes and may have some tonal qualities that would not be found in factory dyed yarn. It is a machine washable yarn but hand washing in cool water and laying flat to dry is recommended for longevity of your hand-made treasure. Please allow for some variation in colour from your computer screen. Produced in a pet friendly home, please be aware if you have extreme allergies.
