Knitter's Review

The moment I set fingers on this yarn, I was in love.  This plush, single-ply merino has been kettle-dyed by a women's cooperative in Uruguay using natural dye extracts.

Knitting Up
This yarn seemed to sing in my hands. Before I knew it, I'd reached a fast and steady pace. Although the yarn looks somewhat unevenly spun on the skein, it evens out under tension, and my plump swatches looked absolutely perfect.

The yarn's relative thickness made it possible for me to knit by touch alone, although it took a while before I stopped peeking to make sure my needles hadn't gone astray.

Blocking / Washing
My swatches survived their wash with flying colors.

I simply filled a sink with warm water and a small amount of mild soap. I submerged my swatches in the warm water and gave them several gentle squeezes to make sure they were fully saturated.

Then I lifted them from their bath, drained and refilled the sink with the same temperature rinse water, and dropped them back in. I gave them a few more gentle squeezes until I was satisfied all the soap was out, then I rolled them in a towel to blot out the excess water and reshaped them before letting them dry flat on a towel.

There was a faint bleeding of color in the first wash, but that was it. Much to my delight, there was no felting, no shrinkage, no stretching, no visible fading of color, no nothing. The fibers gently bloomed, producing a more cohesive and cozy fabric. And they survived their trial by water beautifully.

Conclusion
This is one of the softest, most magical yarns I have ever touched. Ironically, it's also one of the least expensive.

if you have a penchant for softness, like vibrant hand-dyed colors, and enjoy working with smaller yarn companies from around the world - this is too good to miss.
