Sustainable Merino DK—Lichen

33.00

Lichen—rich greens with touches of browns, purples, and brick red.

Everyone loves Merino. It's the softest wool there is. But sometimes that softness comes at a cost: concern about how Merinos on large Australian sheep stations are treated. With Sheepspot's Sustainable Merino, though, you can have that silky softness with none of the worry. All the Merino Sheepspot sells is spun from Merino you can feel good about: ethically- and sustainably-produced Australian Merino certified by NewMerino®. NewMerino® sources its wool from flocks whose shepherds do not use mulesing to control flystrike and who are committed to managing the environment for regeneration and sustainability of grasslands.

  • 100% Sustainable Merino wool yarn, spun from sustainably-produced, cruelty-free Australian Merino wool
  • 246 yards/225 meters
  • DK weight
  • four ply, worsted spun
  • hand-dyed with professional-grade acid dyes

This is a smooth, round, elegant yarn with the perfect combination of drape and elasticity. It's perfect for any project requiring next-to-skin softness 

I use only professional grade acid dyes that are light-fast and wash-fast, and I strive to run my dye studio in an environmentally-sensitive way.
