I photographed this rather fluttery Postman Butterfly at Amazonia indoor rainforest in Scotland. The yarn is red and white with fine black speckles all over.
It's a superwash treated DK weight yarn that's soft and smooth with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for strength and durability. It is suitable for approximately 4-5mm needles. About 225 metres per 100g skein. The nylon content makes it suitable for socks, but it’s next-to-the-skin soft and great for everything else too.
This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
