Prehistory Set - Angkor merino/silk, Petra 100% merino

79.00

Two skeins —
Angkor is an elegant blend of 70% superwash merino, and 30% silk. The silk gives a beautiful drape to fabric, and the blend of springy merino reduces pilling. The higher twist of this yarn adds strength and ensures that the fibers retain their union. This single ply works magnificently in shawls, fine sweaters, and hats. It is not recommended for socks.
Single ply, Fingering weight, 438 yds/400 meters, 100g

One skein—
Petra is a single ply, 100% superwash merino. The luxurious softness of this yarn makes it perfect for hats, scarves, mittens, and cozy shawls. Naturally less susceptible to pilling, the sheen of this fiber makes for a beautiful garment that wears well. With enviable drape, and creamy feel as the yarn runs through your fingers, you are sure to find far too many excuses to use this yarn!

No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, it is recommended that you alternate rows to ensure more variegation and less pooling. Please note that there are many many factors that determine how the dyes will behave; the actual skein you receive may vary slightly from the photos. If you would like a greater number of skeins for a specific project, you are welcome to inquire and they will all be dyed at the same time to ensure the greatest level of similarity!

 My yarns are dyed with professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last against washing and sunlight.

This listing is for one skein of one of a kind, ready-to-ship yarn.

Superwash treated wool can, theoretically, be thrown in the washing machine on a cool setting. To maintain a long life for your garments however, I recommend that you hand wash your wool in cold water with as little agitation as possible. Squeeze out excess water (do not wring since this will damage the fibers and distort your garment), and roll in a towel or lay flat to dry, blocking if necessary. Store yarn as well as finished objects where they are safe from the harmful appetites of moths.
