This merino is quite soft and would be suitable in next to skin projects for most people. It is superwash, I do however recommend hand washing in cool water and then drying flat for all hand knit items. All my yarns are dyed with professional quality dyes in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.
I do try to ensure color accuracy as closely as possible in my pictures, but monitors do vary. Swatch shown is from a brioche scarf I knit with this.
