Sapphire, Polwarth Sock/Shawl
- 100% Superwash New Zealand Polwarth Wool
- 437 yards/100 grams
- 4 ply
Soft, strong and lustrous. This wonderful wool is from the New Zealand Polwarth sheep, an old sheep breed combining 75% merino and 25% Lincoln. The fiber is similar to merino but with more sheen, so sleek, springy and lustrous. It is worsted spun from long staple fibers to produce a yarn that is silky and smooth. Good stitch definition. Ideal for socks, gloves, sweaters and items that require some strength.
Recommended Needle Size: US 1-3. Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches on 3.25mm (US 3) needles
This yarn is superwash, I do 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, monitors do vary and the colors on your screen may differ slightly from what you see when you receive your yarn.
