80% eco-processed organic Merino wool, 20% Global Standard recycled nylon; 3-Ply; fingering weight: full sized skeins have 115g/ 384m (4oz/ 420yds).
This certified organic Merino wool base is "eco-processed". This is a non-conventional superwash treatment that does not use chlorine, employs natural salts as an oxidization agent, and uses less resources overall. It is anti-felt and anti-shrink, and is IMO/GOTS certified.
Perfect for socks, shawls, light sweaters, and summer tops. This base is bright white when undyed and colorways dyed on this base will have a cool undertone. It dyes up vibrantly with crisp speckles. Dyes strike rapidly, and semi-solid and tonal colorways will display more variation in hue/tone than nylon-free and untreated bases. Recycled nylon adds strength, and eco-processing (a non-conventional method of superwash treatment) adds easy washability. As a general rule, you may notice pilling with merino fibres. Treated fibres are generally less suitable for techniques such as cables and colorwork than their untreated counterparts.
