Shibori is a Japanese resist dyeing technique that has been practiced for thousands of years, and is the inspiration for this yarn.

The bands of white on the deep inky blue knits or crochets up as distributed white dots throughout a project, leading to what we think is a very cool effect.

This extrafine merino wool (19.5 microns) is almost as soft as cashmere and is a joy to use and wear. Deliciously bulky, one hank will make a fast hat, cowl or pair of fingerless gloves. 

Dyed by us in our home state of Washington using professional commercial dyes that won't fade or bleed.

Our guarantee: Love it or get your money back. Worried it won't look like the picture? Yeah, we get it. While hand-dyed yarn can vary slightly, we strive for something that looks just like what you're expecting. If you don't think so or you just don't like it, we accept returns within 30 days. And, If you paid for shipping the first time, we'll send you a free return label, too.

Chunky Love

This is my first time to use Global Backyard’s bulky yarn and I love it. The 100% Superwash Merino Wool is so soft and has a beautiful natural sheen. At first I thought the yarn would be slippery, like silk yarns; but to my delight it was not slippery and just so easy to work with. I will definitely continue to support Global Backyard. P.S. I have also used their sock yarn base and that is also a dream to use. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to my future yarn selections and projects with both yarn bases. Thank you Global Backyard!

Gorgeous color

I will be pairing this skein with other skeins for a Stephen West shawl this spring. The base is wonderful and I will enjoy knitting with it again..
