Lately my little boy has been saying “dat a be a-may-zing” for anything that sounds even remotely cool. Which is apparently a lot of things. So I asked him if he would like to help me pick some colours to dye yarn with. And he guess what he said? Yep. Dat a be a-may-zing! He picked 4 colours – bright yellow, hot pink, turquoise, and vanilla. The vanilla isn’t really noticeable amongst the multitude of brightness, but yarn definitely came out a-may-zing!
Meet your new favourite DK weight yarn! Made with high quality 100% Superwash Merino Wool from non-mulesing flocks, this yarn works up to most standard double knit/ DK weight knitting and crochet patterns. The merino is also one of the finer fibres of wool, which makes this an excellent all-rounder for everyday wear, but also provides exceptional comfort when worn next to the skin.
Wool itself has many benefits already. It is fire-resistant and will naturally extinguish a flame. It is breathable and naturally wicks moisture away from the skin, creating a temperature-regulating effect. Wool is a naturally renewable source, with sheep growing a new fleece to be shorn each year, as well as being biodegradable and compostable at the end of its life cycle, putting nutrients back into the ground. It is also resistant to odour, soiling, and water/spills, saving you the costs and time of regular washing. As a bonus the superwash treatment makes it ideal for a quick (but gentle) machine wash.
