This is a “wrap” yarn so a Wool Nylon binder is wrapped around a Merino Sliver for a wavy effect. It is soft and cushiony with a slight sheen. Knits up quickly and is ideal for last minute gifts. One hank is enough for a snuggly cowl, hat, fingerless mitts or headband.

Recommended Needle Size: 5.5 - 6mm (US 9-10)
