This 100% superwash merino is so soft and takes up color like crazy! This yarn is hand dyed in rich colors. 280 yards in a 4 oz skein. Knitting gauge for socks is 5.5 to 6.5 stitches to the inch in US # 4 - 5 needles. For other items, it knits up like a light worsted/heavy dk yarn. I typically use a US #7 needle for kids clothes, sweaters, hats, mittens and blankets. Hand wash; lay flat to dry. Each skein is unique; for best results, please alternate skeins in your project.
