Isager Merilin is a 3-ply yarn made from a blend of 80% wool and 20% linen. As the yarn is 3-ply is works really well in textured patterns. At the same time this yarn is very soft and can therefore be used by many who are otherwise allergic to wool. The linen fibre places itself smoothly over the wool and this gives a lovely melé effect to the yarn, as the linen does not absorb the wool dye. The yarn works well in children's garments, but also in other garments.
Isager yarns are classic yarns for hand knitting, machine knitting, crochet and embroidery. All yarns are made from pure natural fibres, and the undyed yarns are well suited for plant dyeing. Several yarn bases are suitable for machine knitting and can be used together when knitting textured or multi coloured patterns. All yarns are suitable for felting.
The colour range is chosen so that all colours match – also across yarn qualities. Isager rarely changes their colour range, as it consists of basic colorways, which will always contain trend colours.
