MT + SK Merino Light

Madelinetosh Merino Light is 100% Superwash Merino wool in a Fingering weight. This light yarn is dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in coloring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch.

If you combine Merino Light with Shibui Knits Silk Cloud using the same colorways you can create some beautiful garments such as sweaters, wraps, and shawls as seen in the photos. The gold-colored shawl (using Prickly Pear yarns) was crocheted by one of our employees for Shibui for this rollout.
