About Our Yarns
Superwash Merino Wool/ Nylon (85/15)
Our newest yarn collection, Cottage, features 19.5 micron untreated merino wool. Untreated means this yarn base is 100% merino wool, without superwash treatment. This is a 4 ply yarn with incredible softness, a nice smooth texture, and a bouncy hand. I love the way this yarn knits up and it is a great yarn for stitch work like lace and cables as it has wonderful stitch definition. Cottage Yarns are an excellent choice for colorwork and fair isle knitting. While this is a pure wool yarn, it is not at all scratchy and is next to skin soft. Because this yarn is not treated, it requires hand washing only as the wool will felt.
At ontehround we really value play and experimentation and so occasionally we do small runs of different bases to keep things fun and exciting. These bases are usually offered in very limited quantities. Sometimes these bases are dyed in the colorways available in our main collection and sometimes they are dyed in one of a kind batches unavailable anywhere else in our shop! We do recommend that if you see something you like that you get it because nothing in this collection is promised!
