PRIESTESS (READY TO SHIP)- Superwash Merino - DK Weight



PRIESTESS is our soft and plump DK-weight in 100% extra-fine superwash merino. It is a custom milled 3-ply yarn that we mill especially for softness and drape. 

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. Priestess is an extra-fine merino. 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. Priestess is machine-washable (although hand washing is still recommended) and is great for babies and children. It has a high stitch definition and is great for cables and colorwork.

Care Instructions

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 typically 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.
