Easy Ecowash ~ Soft Solids ~ Abstract YarnAY-016
Hand painted in a series of soft solids. A creators range inspired by my painters palette and designed to be paired with variegated or other solid yarns. Each yarn skein is an abstract painting unto itself. Created in small batches each series will never be exactly the same as the ones that came before. Though my colourways are repeated, I am guided by new inspirations each time I dye.
This Eco Wash Merino Yarn is made up of two strands of organic wool singles, this is a premier fingering weight yarn. It can be used in knitting machines, for hand knitting, or in weaving as warp or weft. It has beautiful drape and anti shrink properties.

This is 100% Eco Wash Wool treated with enzymes to decrease the chances of felting. I still recommend hand washing gently with Eucalan of Unicorn Fibre Wash and Rinse, however you can put eco wash wool in your washing machine (at your own risk) on the gentle cycle using a wool appropriate soap. See the Woolly Washing section of my shop for these products.
