100g / 366m - 100% Superwash Merino Single Ply Wool
Paper Tiger is a rich colourway featuring warm browns, copper, rust, and wood tones. It pairs up perfectly with Old Moon, a combination used in the Underneath the Arches shawl.
This beautifully soft single ply merino yarn is perfect for shawls as it really showcases stitches, particularly in a lace pattern. When dyed, this base soaks up colour which provides real depth and richness. Any item made from this yarn will have a luxurious, silky soft finish.
This yarn would not be recommended for knitting socks, or items that will see a lot of wear. For sock knitting, please take a look at our Chora (merino and nylon) base yarns.
If this colorway is not in stock it will be dyed to order for you. As the dyelots are done in small batches they can vary slightly from the picture shown but you will receive a photograph of your yarn before it is posted to check you are happy with the results.
This merino yarn has been treated with a superwash which is a process used to flatten out the yarn scales, making them less prone to felting.
