This luscious 100% pure merino wool is a joy to touch and stitch with. Made in Italy, there are 45 yards per skein. We CAN order a large hank for you, just ask. A hank is 350 yards and costs just $16.50 as of this writing (December, 2014). We recommend 2 ply on 18 ct. Please order enough dye lot for your project!
