Superwash Worsted Wool is made using soft 100% superwashed 25 micron wool that is soft on the skin. Spun in a standard worsted weight that is very popular making it easy to substitute this yarn for many patterns using worsted yarn. The yarn has a lovely bounce and 'plumpness' and more accessible price makes it the ideal woolly jumper yarn for larger projects that on't break the bank. The wool has been superwashed meaning that the fibres have been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore will not ‘felt’ when dyed or washed. It is a great yarn for an easy-care garment and with a 4/8nm construction the yarn has lovely stitch definition.
The wool is mulesing free and comes from South America. The yarn is 100% animal fibre and perfect for dyeing. The yarn is a good bright colour and would dye up well in subtle light shades or bright and vibrant colours. For bright vibrant colours we recommend using acid or natural dyes.
