We at Kingcraig are delighted to be able to offer the most beautiful luxurious Super Geelong fibre at an excellent price. Super Geelong is a yarn from Merino sheep raised in Geelong Australia. Super Geelong comes from the first cut and only the first shearing of pedigree lambs at six months old. It’s the yarn equivalent of Extra Virgin Oil, and one of the world’s most luxurious yarns. This yarn was spun in Italy and folded/twisted to our specification to produce a perfect weight 4 ply yarn. This yarn is made up of 4 x 1/17 NM single yarns which gives a yield of approximately 480 metres per 100 grams and knits up beautifully on needle size 3 to 3.25 mm. This yarn has only been partially treated and so needs to be hand-washed after knitting in order for it to ‘bloom’ and bring out its full beauty. As with most natural fibres we recommend hand washing using a gentle detergent.
