Merino sheep are hardy and thrive in environments which are much too harsh for other domesticated sheep breeds. They are well suited to the high altitudes and mountainous landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island high country, where temperatures can range from 95°F in summer to 5°F in winter. Merino is a breed of sheep famous for its fine, soft wool, and is the "gold standard" to which all other fibers are compared.
This listing is for one skein of DK weight yarn as shown.
70% Merino wool (21.5 micron) / 30% Tussah Silk
This yarn will felt, so if that's not your intention, be sure to handwash your finished garment gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.
