Usually reserved for the finest men’s suiting, Cleckheaton has taken the same incredibly soft fiber and created a spectacular yarn. This high quality wool is put up in 65 gram balls making it 30% larger than an average yarn ball. The larger put up and quality fiber make Cleckheaton Superfine Australian Merino 8-Ply a yarn that’s not to be missed at an amazing price. The combination of the bright white natural color of the fleece and the fine crimp of this wool lends a depth of color to the rich, solid tones, and the cable-plied construction of the yarn itself gives you a round and bouncy DK weight yarn with incredible stitch definition.
