100% Australian yarn, Cleckheaton Superfine Merino is sourced from Australia's finest superfine wool growers, then milled at the historic woollen mills in Wangaratta, Victoria. This hands-on, labour-intensive localised production process makes this yarn incredibly special.
Silky-smooth, squishable and super soft on the skin, this yarn is a delight to knit with!
The Calico and Ivy team love this yarn for our diagonal baby blanket, and the Hugo Bonnet by Perth designer Alison McCarney, of Borish and Stasha.
