Flora 4-ply

Flora is 100% merino grown on farms in the South Island of New Zealand, then super wash treated, and finally spun as a four fold fingering weight (4-ply) yarn at Wild Earth Yarns in Christchurch (NZ). 

At 21-micron it is wonderfully soft, great for accessories and garments, especially babies and children. Flora is named for the natural source of the colours, and because it is super wash treated it takes up the natural dyes more intensely than the untreated yarns so the colours are just the best that nature can deliver.

This yarn is machine washable. (Even so, I still wash my hand knits by hand and dry flat out of direct sunlight for best longevity.)
