Olive Leaves on 8 Ply DK Superwash 100% Merino Yarn

Regular price $32.00 AUD

Olive Leaves is a tonal variegated colourway with ginger yellows and mossy greens meandering through out the hanks. This colourway is similar to Crushed Olives but more variegated which will knit up beautifully.

This Superwash 100% Australian Merino knitting yarn is a very versatile yarn, and can be used for shawls, wraps, mittens and jumpers. Washable in cold water on a very gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes.

This plump buoyant knitting or crochet yarn takes up the dye well to produce deep, vibrant colours. These yarns are worsted spun to produce a yarn that is strong with a silky feel. Very soft and springy, the 4 plies and twist provide extra robustness.

Care for your yarn

When using more than one hank I recommend alternating hanks
