Rico Design Luxury Super100 Superfine Wool DK has absolute premium quality. Spun from the finest Australian merino wool, with this yarn you'll make high-quality durable garments. "Super 100" describes the fineness of the spun wool and means that 100 m of the wool used in this yarn weighs 1 gram.
The finer the fibre, the higher the quality of the yarn. The thickness of raw fibres is measured in microns, a micron corresponds to one-thousandth of a millimetre. The thickness of the fibres in Luxury Super 100 Superfine Wool DK is only 18.5 microns and therefore falls into the “superfine” category. Superfine merino wool feels extremely pleasant on the skin, in fact, it feels like wearing cashmere. If you knit this yarn quality, a very even surface is created.
Another great quality of this yarn: it can be machine washed and after washing it become even softer and more beautiful with each wash. Therefore this wool is ideal for long-lasting knitted pieces. The colour palette of this merino yarn includes classic tones and bright colours.
