JaggerSpun Superfine Merino 2/18's Yarn description:
Made in Maine of Australian super fine 20.5 Micron merino wool, these "lace gauge", yarns will easily make a way into clothing, blankets, and other projects that can be worn next to sensitive skin.
Hand knitters may prefer multi stranding 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 Zephyr Wool/Silk Blend (Item 27), or 2/30 Gemstone Silk (Item 157) to add glisten to your pieces. As a worsted spun yarn, you'll find they are smoother and shinier than woolen spun yarns so they 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 yarns are dyed with the finest low-impact synthetic dyes possible. Excess dyes may be present in some highly saturated 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.
Be sure to have a sample card to check that the colors are as pictured.
Care: Hand wash in cool water or dry clean. Lay flat to dry.
