All About the Base - Our Franschhoek base give you the perfect blend of super fine Merino and lustrous silk. This yarn has a beautiful drape and a smooth handle, and is perfect for next-to-the-skin wear. It is well suited for garments as well as accessories, and is just a treat for your hands to work with. The silk content gives a glow to the yarn, which can give colourways an almost translucent look.
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!
