SW Merino 4 Ply Mini Skeins


One of our best sellers in mini skein format, perfect for colourwork or gradient packs.

Made with 100% superwashed merino wool. The fibres have been specially treated before being spun so the yarn can be machine washed and will not ‘felt’. We deliberately use a fine 21 micron merino fibre in the yarn so it has a soft handle and is not itchy or scratchy next to the skin.

The wool has a natural elasticity which helps a merino garment to stretch yet return back to its original shape.

Mulesing free and from South America, the yarn is 100% animal fibre and perfect for dyeing. Naturally a bright white colour, the yarn dyes up well in subtle light shades or bright and vibrant colours. For bright vibrant colours we recommend using acid or natural dyes.
