100g 4ply sport weight yarn 400m/100g 100% merino wool Springy, 17.5 micron non-superwash Merino, with a lovely bounce. This yarn has less drape than the HHF Sock Yarn, a more wooly feel and great stitch definition. Speckles don't come out as sharp as other bases, but this base is truly stunning and very versatile. Slightly heavier than sock yarn at the same yardage. Custom spun exclusively for Hedgehog Fibres and 100% mulesing free. Randomly dyed to prevent striping or pooling, as much as possible, our yarns create variegated effect that looks good in plain stockinette or advanced stitch motifs. Gentle hand wash recommended.
