All in complementing naturally derived colours!

This is a unique, one-of-a-kind yarn, that is hand-painted and dyed. Warning: you may find a gum nut in the centre of your ball!

With 80% extra-fine merino 20% Nylon, this yarn is so soft.  Soft and cushy, this yarn is perfect for all projects including garments, shawls and baby clothes.  Yarns are in-stock and ready to ship!
