Rough Ridge DK, new for 2018

Introducing this beautiful, soft, undyed yarn that is 80% Merino Cross wool and 20% natural coloured Polwarth wool. It comes in skeins of 240m, weighing 100g+.  No two skeins are the same, each having a unique colour distribution. We recommend that it is knitted into simple shapes that allow the uniqueness of the yarn to shine.

The name “Rough Ridge” comes from the geographical location in Central Otago where the sheep who produce this wool are farmed. Each skein is $NZ28 + postage. Order the yarn on our order form (or by emailing Mary at maniwool@gmail.com) and we will send you an invoice for payment.
