The sea off the coast of the south of France is called the ‘Côte d’Azur’, literally the ‘azure coast’; named so because of its beautiful shades of deep blue. This yarn is a vibrant representation of the Mediterranean sea: from bright turquoise to a clear green-blue to deep sapphire, it is sure to make you dream of far-away places.

Material

I use 4ply Merino wool for all my yarns. It features very fine fibers of 19.5 microns, so it feels gentle and soft. The 4ply - meaning four individual strands are spun together - and superwash makes it strong and durable. A very versatile yarn that is suitable for a wide range of knitted, crochet, or woven item; such as shawls, sweaters, hats, mittens, blankets, or baby clothes. Hand-wash the yarn in cold water and lie flat to dry.
