Perriam 4ply Merino Wool - Duck Egg
Discover the magic of making with our PERRIAM Merino Knitting Yarn. Grown locally in the Central Otago High Country, New Zealand.
Dyed and spun in bespoke limited edition batches, this is an extremely exclusive New Zealand made yarn.
4ply light weight merino wool is perfect for a variety of delicate projects.
Merino is one of the most magical materials in the world. As well as being soft, strong and naturally odour resistant, it also keeps you warm in winter and cool in Summer. And because it's a totally natural fibre, it's biodegradable and renewable.
Our yarn is spun from one of the finest microns in New Zealand, which is what gives each PERRIAM piece that ultra-soft feel. This does mean that fibres migrate to the surface, resulting in pilling or bobbling. But rather than being an indication of low quality, pilling occurs because of the superior softness of our fibres.
As such, we recommend getting yourself a de-pilling machine or a Sweater Stone, which will have your garments looking as good as new in minutes.
We also suggest washing your merino as little as possible – a spot clean and an air out is best for our yarn. And because pilling tends to occur due to friction, try to minimise contact with abrasive surfaces (we know this is harder for little ones).
