Crucci Luxury Merino Crepe 8ply is 100% Pure Merino Wool.
Soft and strong, this crepe textured wool is suitable for most knitting or crochet projects that require a fine quality merino yarn with durability and gentle washability.
A crepe yarn is a different way the wool is constructed or spun. Crepe yarns are 3-ply producing a rounded yarn that looks like a 2-ply yarn with another ply wrapped around it. What this means is that the yarn is soft and still strong which is particularly useful when using the finer wool breed fibres like merino.
