CRONE is our smooth, silky fingering-weight in single-ply superwash merino wool.
Merino wool is known for its softness, shine and breathability. It ranges in different types, measured by microns which are used to determine the diameter of the wool fiber. The smaller the number, the finer the fiber. It is a durable and naturally insulating fiber.
This merino is superwash which keeps the fibers from felting and takes dye easily creating saturated, vibrant colors. The single-ply construction of Crone has a shiny, haloed glow. It has a beautiful drape and is a favorite for colorwork and faded gradients.

Machine wash cold on gentle cycle. Lay flat to dry. To lengthen the life of your projects, we recommend washing by hand.
Colors have depth and vibrance, dyed with professional acid dyes that won't bleed or fade. All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).
We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
