Delaine Merino wool is a lively and crimpy fiber, with great bounce as well as fine-micron softness. The wool in Stone Wool's American Delaine Merino yarn comes from the Belle Fourche region of South Dakota, an area famous for its fine-wool sheep.
Stone Wool made American Delaine Merino two-ply to show off the wooliness of the fiber. Each ply is twisted just enough to hold the fibers in place—important for durability—but not so much as to lose the fiber’s inherent softness. This caressing, pliable yarn is perfect for anything you’d want right up next to you—a hat, scarf, a favourite wear-every day sweater.
The yarn shows its even stitches well in everything from stockinette to delicately textured patterns. The colour palette of beautiful neutrals and bold accent colours offers richness and sophistication for colourwork.
