Organic Merino - fingering

Organic Merino - fingering

$30.00

Our 100% organic merino wool in fingering weight. Fingering weight is what’s most often used to knit socks. There’s enough wool in one skein to knit a pair of socks. It’s also lovely for shawls and lightweight but warm sweaters.

Merino wool is very soft and isn't scratchy for those sensitive to wool. It has a natural lustre to it that reflects the light. The drape of the fabric knitted with merino is not the same as more rustic wools like suffolk. It doesn't hold it's shape in the same way. Merino gives a slouchy or drapey effect which is nice in a shawl.
