This special 100% Australian Aran weight Superfine Merino yarn feels incredibly soft. The yarn has been created to have a deliberate and unusual visual texture rather then a smooth ply. These inconsistencies within the yarn add to the special effect of this incredible yarn.
The superfine merino provides this yarn with a super-soft luxurious feel. It means that the natural shine of the fibre comes through stunningly.
The natural colour of the yarn is perfect for hand-dyers.

The merino is from Ambleside Merino. It is gorgeously soft with amazing comfort and elasticity. The entire journey of this yarn is only 225 kms from farm to yarn. It is a superfine, not super-washed, yarn – therefore, as environmentally friendly as a yarn can be.
The wool has been scoured to remove the lanolin, but it is not carbonised. It means that it is better for for you and the environment. Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill wash all of their fibre with rain water and a low phosphate detergent, therefore you may still find some grass seeds in the yarn.
Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill have designed this yarn by plying merino fibres together during the process to create this lovely merino yarn.
