Gypsy is 100% Merino wool. I hand dyed this wool, using acid dyes, the colors that I used are red, blue, purple, and gold. I got a wonderful mix of color that I call Gypsy. It is so very soft, and spun up like magic. Their are 13 WPI which makes it DK weight yarn, and 140 yards of luxurious, beautiful yarn. Best when knit on size 5 or 6 needles, with a gauge of 5.5 to 6 stitches per inch. This yarn would make a Beautiful, hat, scarf, or a pretty pair of fingerless mitts.
