Soft and smooth, our hand dyed, Pure Merino DK yarn is a firm favourite for projects ranging from small accessories to king size afghans and baby clothes to men’s pullovers. It works equally well for knitting, crochet or weaving.
This extra soft, 3 ply, super wash yarn is mill spun and Herco treated to prevent felting and then hand dyed in our indie dye studio using an earth friendly process and dyes. The special methods used ensure that each strand is imbued with the artist’s energy and will have its own unique characteristics.

Our range of more than 360 colours are usually hand dyed in batches of 5 skeins, although larger batches can be dyed on request. If you don’t find the colour you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll have a go at creating it for you. As with all yarn, and especially hand dyed yarn, it is impossible to match colours exactly as there are just too many variable factors that are totally out of our control. We urge you to order enough yarn for your project. That said, we know that it’s not always possible, so if you ever need a colour to match closely, please send us a photo or a piece of your yarn and we’ll do our best.
Please note the swatches are for colour reference only and may have been dyed on a different weight yarn.
Hand wash in cool water and dry flat. See full washing instructions here: Washing Instructions
