This soft yarn is made with extra fine merino tops.
Because it is a slightly twisted roving, it maintains all of the natural softness and lightness of wool while still being easy to use with knitting and crochet needles. What’s more, once this wool yarn is worked it tends to puff up even more and gets chunkier. Therefore, the pieces you make will not only be super warm and soft but totally cozy too.
Like all that isn’t enough, the dyes used at DHG are Oeko-Tex standard 100 certified and the wool fiber that’s used is mulesing-free. As DHG doesn’t want to compromise on the beauty or sustainability either!
All you have to do now is try it! DHG Piuma wool yarn is ideal to knit and crochet with but also with macramé and needle punch.
An extra tip: pure wool roving is hardly twisted if at all, therefore after the first few washes it can close up slightly (doesn’t get felted!). If you’re planning on knitting Piuma with big needles or do openwork or really open stitches, keep it in mind and adjust the needles and measurements accordingly. You might find it useful to make a sample of the stitch and wash it before doing the final project.
