Black turtle beans are a variety of common beans from the Americas introduced and grown around the world; popular in both vegetarian and Mexican cuisines. With wool, the beans impart a beautiful tonal teal colour range.

With 75% superfine merino and 25% nylon, this yarn is a smooth, soft and durable yarn. It is the perfect choice for socks, baby clothing and blankets. The softness and drape of this yarn makes it ideal for shawls, cardigans, tops, tees and any garment worn next to the skin.
