Aristo - Merino Wool and Linen, is a simple yarn. It is soft with a light tweed, fingering type.
Natural linen varies in thickness to give the yarn a textured finish. When dyed, merino takes on colour, while linen resists the dye and remains white. This produces the mottled effect!
Aristo is ideal for summer and mid-season items. Such as shawls, sweaters and light tops.
Due to its composition, it gives a slightly more structured effect.
Our wools are hand-dyed, so please allow for the quantity needed for your your projectsbecause the colour can vary vary from one bath to another. We pay attention to reproduce the colour of our images as faithfully as possible possible, however, the the color of the screens may vary.
For maintenance, although Aristo isit washable (sw), I recommend that you wash your knitwear in cold water, by hand and dry it flat.
