All About the Base - Calvinia is the perfect hard-working, yet soft yarn. The added bit of nylon makes it perfect for socks, and the fine merino content means it is lovely next to the skin. This yarn gives a good stitch definition to show those textured stitches on garments, gloves, socks or shawls.
Care instructions - Even though this is a superwash yarn, it is always recommended to wash your hand-knits by hand to extend the life of your garment or item.
Hand wash gently in cool water with mild soap, and dry flat to maintain the shape.
Note: for darker, more intense colourways, there may be a little dye residue coming out in the first wash - this is normal and shouldn't affect your colours!
