NB : No dye lots, dye is applied randomly, therefore no two hanks are the same.
The photos of each color are not the actual skein/ yarn base listed, but are representative of the colorway.
When ordering more than one skein per color, we will choose ones that are close in color saturation.
This single ply (mesh) merino is squishy and soft, with just the right amount of twist. Colours shift beautifully from one to another. Randomly dyed to prevent striping or pooling, as much as possible, hedgehog yarns create a variegated effect that looks good in plain stocking stitch or advanced stitch motifs. Will work for any lace pattern, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns
