I feel like the Hydra is the perfect metaphor for my knitting habits: finish one project, two more spring up in its place. As soon as I think I've finally tucked them all away, I realise I'm overwhelmed with sweater necklines and sock toes and scarf ends floating about everywhere! Still, I wouldn't have it any other way - so here's my ode to the knitting Hydra.
100% white merino
23 microns, fine
One of the better known sheep breeds, Merino wool can range from ultrafine (at 11.5 microns) to “strong” (25-26 microns), with the coarser end of the range still coming up softer and finer than many other wools out there. The wool is beautifully dense, evenly crimped, and takes on colour well. Perhaps a little slippery for beginners, but a really great wool for spinning and felting.
This listing is for 100g.
This colourway is: repeatable :)
This roving has been hand-dyed using professional acid dyes.
I would recommend that you gently wash your handspun yarn and the items you've crafted from it by hand, with a special wool soak, hand wash detergent, or gentle baby shampoo to avoid felting. However, if felting floats your boat, really give it some welly!
