8 Ply Luscious DK

85% Superwash Extrafine Merino 15%

Nylon100g / approx 225m


The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort, with 15% nylon which gives extra durability. It is one of my most popular bases because it is so versatile and can be used for scarves, jumpers, blankets, etc, as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and mittens.The fibres are washed, carded and then the combed (aligned) before spinning. Worsted spun yarns spun form longer staple fibres are more luxurious and refined, stronger and will feel softer and smoother. The use of longer, combed fibre and the removal of the shorter fibres during the combing process, significantly reduce pilling in the resultant yarn. The vast majority of spinning occurs in Italy as it offers the highest standard of production now available in Europe. It is hand dyed by me using professional acid dyes. The yarn is washed and rinsed, but may bleed slightly on the first wash. Please note that the photos taken are the best representation of colour that I can achieve. It may vary depending on your computer.


ROTTNEST SWIMpairs perfectly with FREO DOCTOR.


  • Hand wash is recommended and dry flat. Excessive exposure to sun may fade the colour.
