Painter's Pastime yarns are an ever changing set of hand painted yarns, reminiscent of the world around and the artistic interpretations of it, both present and past. 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 Ecowash Merino yarn is made up of one strand of organic wool: this is a premier, heavy 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.
1 ply fingering weight
379 m / 415 yards
115 g / 4 oz skein
One skein will make a medium sized scarf or shawl. It works beautifully with other commercial yarns of the same weight, or with hand spun yarns.
This yarn is mill spun from 100% non-chlorinated, anti-shrink wool tops and has the following unique characteristics:
Softer touch compared with conventional treatments
Brilliant white, superior colour compared with conventional treatments
Superior nap characteristics
Anti-shrink to TM31 Standards, machine washable
IMO/GOTS Certified base
This is 100% Ecowash wool, treated with enzymes to decrease the chances of felting. I still recommend hand washing gently with Eucalan or Unicorn Fibre Wash; however, you can put Ecowash 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.

Please see the Craft Yarn Council Website to understand how the weight of this yarn has been classified.
