Isager Merilin 4 ply
Isager Merilin is a 3-ply yarn made from a blend of 80% wool and 20% linen. It works really well in textured patterns. It is a very soft yarn and can be used by those of you who are otherwise sensitive to wool.
The linen fibre sits smoothly over the wool and this gives a lovely melé effect to the yarn, as the linen does not absorb the wool dye.
As with all Isager yarns Merilin combines beautifully with mohair to create a DK weight,Here are some approximate gauges
Merilin: 3 mm needles = 26 sts / 32 rows
Merilin + Alpaca 1: 3 mm needles = 24 sts/ 30 rows
Merilin + Alpaca 2: 3.5 mm needles = 22 sts / 26 rows
Merilin + Silk Mohair: 4 mm needles = 20 sts / 24 rows
Ball weight: 50g
Spun and dyed in Peru for Isager yarn.
