Ethical Superfine Merino from Tasmania’s Midlands.
White Gum Wool Bouclé. This is a wrapped yarn, made like a bouclé, but because of the extreme loft and softness of WGW fibre, feels more like a soft chenille. A great yarn for beanies, scarves and blankets, it knits up quickly and is very warm and light as a knitted fabric.
Quality:- This yarn is made from 17-micron, superfine “saxon” merino wool. This is the calibre of wool used in the finest of Italian men’s suiting, and gives an amazing softness and handle to the yarn. White Gum Wool is naturally bright white, nearly snowy, and the dyed colours are inspired by the landscape where the wool is grown. While maintaining quality, the very nature of the Merino superfine wool, which makes it lovely and soft next to your skin and in keeping with their ‘natural’ approach to production, this yarn tends to pill for the first few washes and de-piling is necessary and recommended, until the yarn settles.
