Did you know nearly half of all wool comes from merino sheep. Merino fibres are fine with a good crimp, so they feel extremely soft and springy and keep their shape well.
This Lang Yarn Young is made with 100% quality Australian merino wool, it's chunky so it's perfect for quick projects, soft light squishy, and has fantastic colourways.
You should know it's stocked at the Yarning Place 😊New colours have arrived in Lang Young. A chunky superfine merino perfect for Scarves, snoods and beanies. Really squishable too.

We love socks too Woolsy Trading Post and Sockology is a basic pattern for hand knitted socks with so many options: lots of sizes, lots of yarns and you will find different ways to make the heel, with a straight hat or a cap skew or the boomerang heel.
