Empire mini skeins are in a lovely semi solid mid range blue/purple shade which is not quite purple and not quite blue with slight colour shade variations throughout.
These little skeins are perfect fro multicoloured scrappy knitting and crochet, and toes and heals of socks are a favourite!
Add a couple of splashes of colour to a basic scarf pattern to jazz it up and make you full sized skein really shine.
Yarn Base Details
- 85% Super-wash Australian Merino 19.5 micron + 15% Nylon Yarn
- Approx. 80 meters per 20 g hank/skein
- Hand dyed with Australian made dyes
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.

All of my yarns are hand dyed by me using Australian made dyes.
This is super wash yarn and can be gently washed in the washing machine but most people will hand wash this yarn.
