Lang Yarns Merino 130 Compact knitting yarn has fibres that are bundled together by targeted aerodynamic forces, so that the ends are spun in more perfectly than has been known before. Along with the well-loved characteristics of merino wool the quality has the outstanding distinction that hairiness and pilling are reduced to a minimum.
This yarn is composed of 100% merino wool and knits on knitting needles 3.5-4 mm (US 4-5 / UK 9-8) for a gauge of 23 st. and 32 rows. A 50 g (1.75 oz) ball holds about 130 m (142 yd). Use 12 balls to knit a sweater for women size M.
Machine washable at 30°C (86°F) with detergent for delicate wash without softener.
