This individual skein of 4 ply is a blend of 80% New Zealand Merino Wool, 10% Silk and 10% Nylon is one of a kind. This one is based on the Albatross, famous for breeding in Dunedin on the Otago Peninsula.
Loris Ives from Dunedin hand dyes the wool to resemble the plumage of different native New Zealand birds under the name McAuslin. Each skein is dyed separately, so no two skeins will be the same.
Great to knit or crochet, sufficient to make into a scarf, shawl, babywear or socks! A wonderful gift to inspire Kiwis living overseas - light to send!
400 meters approx., yarn made in Wellington or Christchurch, depending on the blend.
Made in New Zealand.
