We have lots of sport weight yarns, and our share of Merino yarns, but Gaia Sport is both of these, and in an economical 8 ounce skein. And it isn't just Merino, it is superfine Merino for an even softer feel. Even better, it is 100% organic, so you can feel good about taking it easy on Mother Nature. As a sport weight yarn, it is a great choice for lighter weight sweaters, hats, and gloves, or anything that is going to be worn right against the skin. If you are considering it for weaving, think about scarves, shawls, and blankets.
Gaia Sport can be dyed using Washfast dyes.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process.
