        MERINO WOOL CHARACTERISTICS

        The merino wool we source averages 20.5 microns — within the typical finewool range, and retaining the Merino-specific quirks of supreme density, high tensile strength, high crimp, and delightful springiness. Worsted-spun into a smooth, Peerie hits the sweet spot of being both next-to-skin soft and durable (not prone to pilling).

      • Gauges

        6¼ –8 stitches to 1"  |  Suggested Needle: 2¾-3½ mm (US 2-4)
      • Care

        We recommend alternating skeins while knitting to distribute the color evenly.


        WET-BLOCKING

        1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water and submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
        2. Soak work for several minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
        3. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
        4. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
