Boulder Grey is one of those neutral colourways that is almost timeless. With greys and browns with speckles of browns and oranges this colourway is versatile, knittable and wearable!

This versatile every day yarn is perfect for quick knit socks, beanies accessories and  sweaters especially for harder wearing items. 

At 225mt per hank, these will make one pair of adult socks. Mini Skeins are available in limited colours and are recommended make the heals and toes really sing!

Matching mini skeins can be found HERE

With 85% Australian 19.5 micron non mulesed Merino and 15% nylon this yarn is super soft and squishy. The 19.5 micron merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durability.


The quality of the Australian merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres at 19.5 microns which is some of the finest commercially available for hand knitters. This results in a versatile yarn that feels gentle against the skin and wears really well especially for those harder wearing items.

This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.
