Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted Washable is:
- 100% Merino Superwash
- 50 gram ball, approximately 95 yards
- Gauge: 5 stitches per inch on US 8 needles, worsted weight yarn
- Care: Machine washable! Wash your finished garment inside out in cool water. Tumble dry low or reshape and lay flat to dry.
The 50 gram balls make this yarn perfect for color knitting and small knitting projects like cuddly knit toys and stuffed animals, Fair Isle, stripes, and intarsia knitting. Wooly Worsted is made from top quality Merino which is naturally soft. Merino wool strands are long so there aren’t as many fibers to irritate the skin as in traditional wools.
Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted Washable is composed of three tightly twisted, perpendicularly plied strands of fiber. It’s a round yarn, almost like spaghetti. The stitches don’t blend with one-another like fuzzy woolen-spun yarn does. Instead, they give crisp stitch definition and high relief to everything, from cables to ribbing.
