Hand-Dyed Yarn | Merino Wool | My Name Is June


Hand-dyed yarn made by me! This yarn was dyed using high-quality acid dyes. Each skein is truly a one-of-a-kind and is made in small batches. Because of the nature of hand-dyed yarn, you may receive a skein that looks slightly different than the skein pictured here. Here are the particulars:

Yarn Bases Available:

85/15 Sock (Biscotti Sock): This sock yarn blend is 85% Superwash Merino Wool/15% Nylon. It is a soft, 4-ply yarn that is worsted spun which creates a durability that will withstand much wear and tear. If you’re looking for a soft sock blend, this is your winner. Each skein contains approximately 100 grams/437 yards

100% 4-ply fingering (Espresso Fingering): This fingering weight yarn contains 4-plies of 100% Superwash Merino Wool. This yarn does not contain any nylon which allows it to have a very drapey effect when knit up. Each skein contains 100 grams/437 yards.

DK Weight (Chai DK): This 4-ply DK Weight blend contains 75% Superwash Merino Wool/25% Nylon. This yarn is wonderful for sweaters, hats, mittens, and scarves. Each skein contains 100 grams/245 yards.

DK Weight (Cortado DK): This 4-ply DK Weight blend contains 75% SW Wool/25% Nylon. This base has a slightly more rustic feel and is a more durable breed of sheep wool than the Merino Wool. Each skein contains 245 yards/100 grams.

DK Weight (Americano DK): This 4-ply DK Weight is 100% Superwash Merino Wool. This is a very bouncy, high-twist yarn and the softest we offer. Each skein is 231 yards/100 grams.

Worsted Weight (Mocha Worsted): This Worsted Weight yarn contains 4-plies of 100% Superwash Merino Wool. This is our most popular yarn for hats and scarves but would also make a warm and squishy sweater. Each skein contains 100 grams/218 yards.

Merino/Silk/Stellina (Muscovado Fingering): This is the newest base to the shop and is truly a beautiful fingering weight yarn. This sparkly yarn contains 70% SW Merino Wool/20% Tussah Silk/10% Stellina. The 10% Stellina allows this yarn base to sparkle much more than the industry standard of 5%. There are 437 yards/100 grams.

Merino/Silk/Nylon (Crema Fingering): This is a very high quality blend of 75% Superfine Superwash Merino Wool/25% Grade A Mulberry Silk. The Merino is a 16.5 micron (lower number=finer, softer wool) wool, which is hard to find in the market. The Mulberry Silk is the finest in the industry and creates a luxurious sheen and unbelievable softness in this blend. Because Mulberry silk is a long staple fiber, it adds strength to this base for durable wear. Each skein contains 437 yards/100 grams.

I try my best to take photos to accurately represent the colors but since each computer/mobile device displays pictures slightly differently, colors may differ a little in person than what you see on your screen. if you have questions about color/photos, please send me a message. Thanks!

Washing: Machine washable (although, I always recommend hand-washing for best results), lie flat to dry.
