Here’s how this yarn looks after being washed and dried:
As you can see from the photo, our Merino yarn shrinks by about 5.5% and felts a bit after being washed in a washing machine and dried in a dryer at high temperature setting. Machine washing is not recommended for this yarn. Please, hand wash it and dry flat for best results.
