Every wool skein is hand-dyed individually by Loris from McAuslin Merino in Dunedin. Each skein is accompanied by a postcard of the relevant bird; some share a multi bird postcard.
The colours are a celebration of the plumage of each bird. Skeins vary in intensity of shading as each skein is dyed separately/individually. Each skein is unique!
You can choose both your bird colour and the type of wool. Options for wool are (all $40):
8ply / Double Knit 100% Merino
4ply 100% Merino
4ply 100% Merino High Twist
8ply / Double Knit 100% Merino Worsted Polwarth
and 4ply machine-washable sock wool comprised of Possum, Merino, Alpaca and Nylon - at $45
The South Island Merino wool is processed in Christchurch by Wild Earth Yarns. Hand wash.
Each 4ply skein weighs between 100 and 109 Gms, sufficient for a long scarf, or a pair of large socks. 8ply is between 102 and 105 Gms (though this can vary very slightly, for all the skeins).
Please provide a residential address for courier (cannot deliver to PO Boxes).
We're happy to let you know McAuslin won't charge additional postage for Rural Delivery orders.
Please note this wool will be shipped to you directly from McAuslin and will arrive separately from other items in your order.
