Bellissimo 8ply Merino extra-fine is a versatile yarn with a tight twist, perfect for a wide range of knitting and crochet projects. It is actually our most popular yarn and when you feel it and look at its wonderful range of clear, gorgeous, jewel-like colours, you'll understand why.
The extra-fine merino wool for this lovely yarn is sourced from Tasmania and is then milled, spun and dyed in Italy. The water used in processing Bellissimo wool is the pure melted snow from the Italian Alps. The factory is located about halfway up the mountain. When the process is finished, the water flows down and is irrigated to the Arborio rice-growing region around Novara.
