Gems Superwash Merino Wool Yarn - Cream

$16.95

 

Gems 100% merino is a dream sweater yarn! Machine wash & dry. It is a true worsted-spun yarn with a tight twist to minimize pilling while maintaining a high elasticity. This combination allows for excellent stitch definition, making cable designs truly come to life.

The fingering-weight is a favorite yarn base among indie-dyers.

Gems is custom-spun for Louet North America in South Africa from non-mulesed sheep. Pressure-dyed for consistent colour that is spectacular for crisp colourwork patterns.
