Barely Gray, Aussie Extra Fine HIGH TWIST with Nylon
This is the color of the extra skein in the 2021 Halloween Box
This is a special purchase Fingering Weight yarn with 2 plies and a high twist - We're taking this yarn for a test run . It's the same fiber as our other Extra Fine Merino bases, just twisted differently.
Two plies are twisted tightly together to produce a very soft and springy yarn. This yarn is slightly plumper than our Aussie Extra Fine Sock w/Nylon (which has 4 plies) and just as soft. The 2 plies make the yarn slightly bumpy which helps the strands of yarn hold together against each other making it great for colourwork and lace work. The thicker strands also help speckles pop even more.
The extra fine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durability.
