Ashland Bay Superwash Merino and Nylon Roving
This soft superwash merino and nylon blend is a natural creamy white, with fine texture. Superwash Merino wool will not felt, and has a more slippery texture than non-superwash-treated wool. The nylon provides some strength, as well as a bit more grip while spinning. It's a beautiful choice for spinning yarn for socks or any other item that needs to withstand more wear and frequent washing. As this is a natural product, expect slight variation from one batch to the next.
This blend can be dyed with Jacquard Acid Dyes. Expect the nylon to absorb less dye than the Merino, for subtle highlights in your finished yarn.
Sold by the ounce. 85% superwash Merino wool, 15% nylon
