About Mighty Merino 2.0


A 100% merino superwash powerhouse for the softer things in life. This yarn knits up perfectly for garments and other next-to-skin soft items. This version replaces our old Mighty Merino base but has the same characteristics. It takes the dye very vividly, is soft, smooth, and comes in slightly shorter wound skeins.

Fiber contents 100% extra fine superwash merino
Weight per skein 100 grams / 3,5 oz
Running Length 400 meters / 437 yards
Yarn Type Fingering weight / 4-ply


We advise against knitting socks with this yarn. While a merino yarn consisting of 4 plies can be used to knit socks, they will quite probably wear out faster than sock yarns with added nylon, or made out of BFL.

This listing is for 1 skein of yarn. Photo of multiple skeins shows a comparison between yarn bases and/or skeins.

Colors may slightly vary on every monitor due to settings. This means that the color may differ a little bit in real life from what you see on screen.
