Myths, legends, and fables are all stories. They are handed down from generation to generation changing over the years as the teller puts their own spin on the story, but retaining the key components. These yarns twist and turn as they are spun to bind us all together in the fabric of life.

Extra fine (19.5 micron) merino is used for these yarns. It feels soft and gentle against to the skin. These yarns are worsted spun from extra long staple fibres to produce a yarn that is fine and strong with a silky feel.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
A very versatile yarn, it can be used for shawls, wraps, mittens and jumpers. Washable in cold water on a gentle cycle, it is also suitable for children's and baby clothes. Very soft and springy.
