Made in Maine of Australian super fine merino wool, these yarns will easily make a way into clothing and other products that can be worn next to sensitive skin. Hand knitters may prefer multi stranding this yarn for larger gauges. Perfect for Estonian Haapsalu Shawls.
Three strands for a sport weight and 5 strands for a worsted weight. Weavers will enjoy the range of colors for making tartans. It's never itchy... and you can mix it with the 2/18's Zephyr Wool/Silk Blend (Item 27), 2/30's Gemstone Silk (Item 157), or K1C2's Douceur et Soie (Item 56) to add glisten to your pieces. As a worsted spun yarn, you'll fine they are smoother and shinier than woolen spun yarns. They also won't full as much when washed/finished, so plan on a closer sett or tighter gauge (finish your swatch to determine if you like the finished piece). JaggerSpun is dyed with the finest dyes possible. Excess dyes may be present in some colors so sample first. If excess dye is present, skein the yarn and rinse until the water runs clear. Deep purples may not be colorfast when exposed to sun, so avoid prolonged exposure to bright light.
Care: Hand wash in cool water or dry clean. Lay flat to dry.
