MERGE - our newest collection!
Our new Merge Collection is hand dyed and millspun in the exact same manner as our ColorMix Collection. The only difference, is that it consists of a NON-superwash Merino wool. For those that prefer the natural properties of wool, this yarn is for you!
Merge Sport is a non-Superwash 2-ply, sport weight yarn consisting of 100% Merino wool. It is hand dyed first and then spun into yarn on semi-worsted machinery, resulting in a yarn that is light, airy, and bouncy. This yarn will squish and bloom depending on your gauge and knitting/crochet style. We love this yarn weight for its ability to work for patterns calling for fingering, sport, and even some DK. (Always swatch before starting your project.) Merge Sport is soft and buttery, perfect for all items, especially garments where you want your item to better keep its shape, or require steeking. Hand wash only.

About the Merge Collection:
Yarn Hero’s Merge line is a unique dyed-in-the-wool yarn that works up into long gradients and/or stripes of color. Unlike hand-painted yarn, the colors will shift, marl, stripe, and shift back again. Each skein is a one-of-a-kind, even when from the same dye lot. It is suggested you make sure to purchase enough skeins for your project from the same dye batch, as colors can, and will, vary from batch to batch.
Due to the nature of how this yarn is dyed (kettle dyed first, then spun into yarn), color placement and intensity will vary between skeins, and within the skein itself. The yarn you receive may look slightly different than those in the photo. This is something that cannot be controlled, and is the beauty of this type of yarn. Let yourself go and allow the yarn to do it’s magic! If you have a preference — darkest, lightest, one showing the most of a certain color, please write it in the notes and I will do my best. When ordering multiple skeins, I will try to select skeins that are the closest match to one another.
A note about the milling process:
All Merge yarns are milled in a small, family-run US mini mill. This means that the yarns are created by hand in small batches on simple cottage industry equipment. Due to this, there will be small variances in the thickness of the yarn, as well as the occasional join or slub throughout the skein.
