This batch of Purple Passion has been modified slightly with heavily speckled shades of dark purple blues with pink splashes. These colours will vary in intensity and colour throughout the skeins.
This colour may show with more blue than it actually has.
This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.
Being super wash it can be gently washed in the washing machine but most people will hand wash it with an approved wool wash separately at first.

The fine Australian merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durability.
The main factor determining the quality of Australian merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. The use of fine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available results in a super soft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
