Every rural New Zealand man and woman used to have, or still has a classic homespun jumper in their wardrobe.
Skeinz from Napier New Zealand has designed a series of old fashioned, hard wearing, earthy yarn that is the closest you can get to a classic kiwi homespun yarn.
The yarn is made from 100% natural undyed wool, it is minimally processed and very gently spun. Hence at first touch you may still feel some lanolin.
It is 8 ply DK weight, great for your winter outer layer, or that cabled sweater you always wanted to make.
One skein weights 200gm, it is a good quality yarn that is also very economical.
200gm= approximately 400m
Recommended needle size: 3.5mm-4.5mm
Gauge range: 19-22 sts per 10cm
Gentle hand wash, dry flat in shade.
