8 Ply DK Pure Merino Wool Yarn in Butterfly

Regular price $32.00 AUD

This new batch of Butterfly is a warm rainbow style colourway. In a combination of pinks, blues and violet shades on this soft and squishy 8 Ply or DK weight yarn knits and feel lush! 

Skeins will vary from one to the other so I recommend to alternate them while knitting

The third image shows Butterfly with Port Berry and Tea Rose Mohair and Silk laceweight.  No Superwash pure wool yarn that is luxuriously soft.

Sustainable and untreated, a yarn that is as close to its natural origins as possible. No superwash treatment, just a wash to remove the grease and dirt from the fleece then combed for spinning. A great choice for those looking for a luxurious, non superwash, no nylon yarn.
