Photo 4. ✦ 8 ply – 100g skein of DK weight / 8ply merino/nylon, 225m (246yds) per skein. Photo 5. This is a soft springy yarn with a 4ply construction making for a smooth finish. Perfect for making anything that needs a bit of extra strength from wear and tear (due to the nylon) but also totally soft enough to wear up against delicate skin so go crazy with scarves and shawls. The Merino in this yarn is sourced from South America and is mulesing free.
