Arrakis - Mighty Merino 2.0
Arrakis is inspired by the novel DUNE by Frank Herbert.
It reminds me of long desert surfaces and the spice that makes its world go round.
This sandy base color works beautifully in almost everything and is spiced (see what I did there?) up with blue and brown speckles, highlighted by a sprinkling of dark gray.
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.
