Huon Orchard is a colourway from home. The Huon Valley lies in the south of Tasmania, and is renowned for for its orchards bursting with apples and pears. I love how this colourway can appear a rich apple green or a more muted pear hue with more earthy tones underneath.
This extra fine merino yarn is as soft as wool gets! It's super soft, squishy, and sproingy. Because of the extra "sproing", it knits up ever-so-slightly heavier than some other DK weight yarns, but you get an extra 15% in the skein.
This is the perfect go-to yarn for accessories like scarves, cowls, hats, baby items, or a special snuggly cardi or jumper. Please contact me if you'd like a larger quantity for an adult sized garment.
Yarn: Merino DK
Blend: 100% Superwash extra fine merino (sourced from South America, non-mulesed)
Meterage per skein: Approx 230m
Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London using only professional-grade dyes.
I recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water order to keep the colours looking their best.
I do my best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, but please keep in mind that computer monitors vary.
