100% extrafine superwash merino, DK weight, 100g/220m single ply Super soft, very nice next to skin. Ideal for hats, scarves, cowls, shawls. Machine washable on a gentle wool cycle but I recommend cold hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits. After washing laid flat to dry. Recommended needle size: 3,5 – 4,5 mm (but always make gauge)
