Terroir is a 100% non-Superwash Merino yarn, fingering weight and perfect for sweaters, hats and other accessories. Non-Superwash yarns take color in such a different way, lending to softer speckles and more movement of color. This 4-ply is next to skin soft, and so lovely to knit with. All of our skeins have been hand-dyed and heat set. For best results, please hand wash and lay flat to dry.
